"If you are truly at peace, you can do anything" - Master Shifu in Kungfu Panda 2, 2011
Are you a fan of Kungfu Panda, Madagascar, Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon or other DreamWorks movies? Then you should not miss DreamWorks Animation Exhibition in Seoul, Korea. The Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA) presents the DreamWorks Animation Special Exhibition - from sketch to screen (from a rough sketch to life on screen), running from April 30th until August 15th, 2016. The exhibition is said to be the world's largest animation exhibition and it showcases the entire creation processes behind internationally beloved dreamworks animation movies. The exhibition has been put together by the California-based animation powerhouse, the SEMA and the Australian Center for the Moving Image (ACMI). So far it has visited Australia, Singapore and New Zealand before traveling to Korea.
As you enter the museum you will be greeted by the giant Kungfu Panda and the kids!
Upon entering the lobby you will be greeted by Melman's hind end and the cute Madagascar penguins.
The exhibition area is basically divided up into zones, with each zone representing a movie.
Most of the characters were created as 3D-molds
