梦工厂简介

  梦工厂(DreamWorks SKG)是美国排名前十位的一家电影洗印、制作和发行公司,同时也是一家电视游戏,电视节目制作公司。

  当梦工场在1995年成立之后,迅速站稳了脚跟。从1997年的《阿米斯泰德号》开始,梦工场就开始充当掘墓人德角色,它要打破各大影厂对市场的垄断地位。1998年《天地大冲撞》、《拯救大兵瑞恩》均战绩不俗,梦工场初步创立了自己大制作的优势。而《小蚁雄兵》和《埃及王子》的诞生证明梦工场要与Disney在动画领域一争长短也许现在还单薄了点,但日后它会强大得令对手颤抖不以。

  由斯皮尔博格领衔的好莱坞三巨头创建未足十年的这家创新型电影公司,凭借其创造性和技术前沿的领先地位,已被视为好莱坞七大厂之外的“21世纪的数码制造厂”。年间与高科技公司惠普的合作展示了他们对创新技术资源的把握能力。

  DreamWorks, LLC, also known as DreamWorks Pictures, DreamWorks SKG, or DreamWorks Studios is a major American film studio which develops, produces, and distributes films, video games, and television programming. It has produced or distributed more than ten films with box-office grosses totalling more than $100 million each. Its most successful title to date is Shrek 2.

  It began as an ambitious attempt by media moguls Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and David Geffen to create a new Hollywood studio, but in December 2005, the founders agreed to sell the studio to Viacom, the parent company of Paramount Pictures. The sale was completed in February 2006. DreamWorks' animation arm was spun-off in 2004, into DreamWorks Animation SKG, as such it will remain independent of Paramount/Viacom, however its films will be distributed worldwide by Paramount. In 2007, the winner of the reality film competition On the Lot will win a million-dollar development deal with DreamWorks.

Overview

  The company was founded following Katzenberg's forced resignation from The Walt Disney Company in 1994. At the suggestion of Spielberg's friend, the two made an agreement with long-time Katzenberg collaborator Geffen to start their own studio. The studio was officially founded on October 12, 1994 with financial backing of $33 million from each of the three main partners and $500 million from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.

  The first feature length DreamWorks film to be released was The Peacemaker, in 1997, although a failed TV pilot called Dear Diary was put into limited theatrical release in 1996. It went on to win an Oscar for Best Short Film.

  In 1999, 2000 and 2001, DreamWorks won three consecutive best picture Oscars for American Beauty, Gladiator and A Beautiful Mind (the latter two with Universal).

  DreamWorks Records, the company's record label (the first project of which was George Michael's Older), never lived up to expectations, and was sold in October 2003 to Universal Music Group, which operated the label as DreamWorks Nashville. That label was shut down in 2005 when its flagship artist, Toby Keith, departed to form his own label.

  The studio has had its greatest financial success with movies, specifically animated movies. DreamWorks Animation teamed up with Pacific Data Images (now known as PDI/DreamWorks) in 1996 to create some of the highest grossing animated hits of all time, such as Antz (1998), Shrek (2001), its sequel Shrek 2 (2004), Shark Tale (2004), Madagascar (2005), Over the Hedge (2006), and Flushed Away (2006). Based on their success, DreamWorks Animation has spun off as its own publicly traded company. In fact, PDI/DreamWorks has emerged as the main competitor to Pixar in the age of computer-generated animation, and is based in Redwood City, California.

  In recent years DreamWorks has scaled back. It stopped plans to build a high-tech studio, sold its music division, and only produces one television series, Las Vegas.

  In December 2005, Viacom's Paramount Pictures agreed to purchase the live-action studio. The deal is valued at approximately $1.6 billion, an amount that includes about $400 million in debt assumptions. The company completed its acquisition on February 1, 2006.

  On March 17, 2006 Paramount agreed to sell the DreamWorks live-action library (through September 17, 2005) to a group led by George Soros for $900 million. Paramount will retain distribution rights, as well as various auxiliary rights, including music publishing, sequels, and merchandising -- this includes films that had been made by Paramount and DreamWorks, so now Paramount will have worldwide distribution rights to these films. The sale was completed on May 8, 2006.
