DreamWorks Studios Company Profile
Steven Spielberg has long since realized his dream. The filmmaker's DreamWorks Studios is a producer of movies and TV shows (I Love You, Man; The United States of Tara). The company was founded in 1994 by Spielberg, animation guru Jeffrey Katzenberg, and recording industry maven David Geffen as a diversified media firm. It struggled with any business beyond films and TV, and later shed its arcade business and a music label. Money-maker DreamWorks Animation was spun off to shareholders as a separate company in 2004. DreamWorks Studios operates through a financing partnership with Reliance Big Entertainment, which distributes its movies in India. DreamWorks Studios also has a distribution deal with Disney.
