Checking Out The Science Behind Dreamworks Animation

DreamWorks Animation

Your average animated film today looks a lot different from Snow White or The Jetsons, and it's all due to the computer animation techniques we use today.

On Wednesday's Up to Date, we talk with a Dreamworks animator and a look at the science that makes the silver screen computer animation work.


  • Jason Schleifer, head of character animation, DreamWorks Animation

Hear More: Jason Schleifer speaks about the art and science of animation on Thursday evening at 7 at the Linda Hall Library, 5109 Cherry Street, Kansas City, Mo. Visit the library's website for free ticket information.
