Dreamworks Animation Development Xmas CD
« on: December 08, 2018, 10:17:50 PM »
In the spirit of the season -- I was in my little junk shop here in the 'hood and was looking thru their stacks of CDs for Xmas music and came across this disc.

It looks to have been produced solely for the Dreamworks Animation Development Dept, back in 2001.

What was even more cool is that this CD has dedications inside to Mireille Soria, who, at that time, was a producer at Dreamworks animation, and who is now president of Paramount's animation division (since July, 2017).

So this was Soria's CD, that she must have decided to donate, at some later time.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0814969/

The 2 dedications are by Lance Young, and  Mike Lachance, who also were animation execs at Dreamworks at that same time.

And mostly, its an awesome playlist by the artists who are included on it.  thumbsup.gif

WTF!!!!  I made this fucking CD.  Sorry for the language, but it is a fucking CD and I was in charge of it.  So much work went into it.  Lance Young, my boss, was #2 at DWA at the time right after Jeffrey Katzenberg.  Mireille was a producer.  Mike is now a top exec at Sony Animation.  These were crazy years.  So much fun with the success of Shrek.  So many memories.

Ha!!!

Wow, that's an amazing small world/community story, T!  Sounds like that makes our Jeff four degrees from Katzenberg; and, Jeff may now have some of your actual DNA in his house assuming you may have touched the CD?!   Okie

If not DNA, perhaps a smudged fingerprint or 2, that belonged to Mireille. I'll have to dust for prints, Okie. ;)
