Kung Fu Panda
We are greeted by Kung Fu Panda and the kids at the entrance to DreamWorks. Notice the visitor on the left, to get an idea of the size.
The one and only Shrek!
Upon entering the lobby we were greeted by Melman’s hind end, and these cute Madagascar penguins.
The exhibition area is to the left, and upon entering you can see that it is divided up into zones, with each zone representing a movie.
There are drawings showing how the stories are sequenced together. I had no idea that there is so much actual sketching and drawing involved. I always assumed that the story line and characters would be developed totally on a computer screen.
Sketches of a DreamWorks story line…
Artist interviews are broadcast on small screens set up in each zone. Although the interviews are in English (with Korean subtitles) they were more often than not muted. That was my biggest criticism of the show. However, I could still sense the artists excitement and attention to detail through their facial expressions and body language.
Most of the characters were also created as 3-D molds. This one is my favorite.
Finally, we get to see that Melman’s hind end is indeed still attached to his head!
This animated work station/desk was also very cool. Sketches kept appearing and reappearing. I would love to know how this was put together!
Computers were scattered around the exhibit area, and visitors were encouraged to experience the Facepower software. Changing each character’s facial features was fun for both the little kids and the big kids!
Now, I think it’s about time that I see Kung Fu Panda. This guy is just so cute!
If you’re in Seoul, come in out of the heat and have some fun at the Seoul Art Museum.
