Here are 6 highlights of the exhibition you should be looking out for!

        1. Dragon Flight: A Dragon’s-Eye View of Berk


One of the main highlights of the exhibition is the ‘Dragon Flight: A Dragon’s- Eye View of Berk'!

Hop on for a breathtaking ride on the back of Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon as he takes you around the Isle of Berk, home to the many vikings and dragons! With a wide curved frame - the 40-foot and 180-degree projection, it promises to take visitors on a panoramic ride of a lifetime.

         2. Models/ Displays


Be it character models, various sketches of scenes from your favourite animation film or paper-cut designs of the fairytale wonderland in Shrek, be mesmerised by the comprehensive discovery of DreamWorks Animation’s works over the past 20 years.

         3. Drawing Room


The ‘Drawing Room’ is the perfect place for aspiring animators to showcase their talent. Visitors can try their hands at creating a short animation sequence themselves, using the same software that DreamWorks’ animators use. Try a stickman figure or a ball for a start!

         4. Storyboarding


In the ‘Story’ gallery, be drawn in as filmmaker Conrad Vernon shows us an upbeat, step-by-step pitch for the infamous ‘Interrogating Gingy’ scene in Shrek. Then, see how stacks of sketches string together to form the backbone of a film in an immersive animated installation.
