Obama Bundler Jeffrey Katzenberg Shipped DreamWorks Animation Jobs to India
The left wants to point fingers at Romney as an outsourcing pioneer when, in fact, their own side is just as guilty of the practice. Let's look at DreamWorks Animation CEO and Obama bundler Jeffrey Katzenberg. When Katzenberg had a $125 million flop, he changed direction:
After DreamWorks Animation suffered a $125 million loss on the tradionally-animated Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas, the studio switched to all computer-generated animation. Since then, DreamWorks' animated films have consistently been successful.
That change included outsourcing all of the animation jobs overseas to India. I guess they didn't have enough talent in the USA to haul halfway around the world to Bangalore, India:
Paprikaas, which formed a partnership with DreamWorks Animation, of Glendale, Calif., last year, is in the animated business, performing tasks like character modeling, set design, animation, and color correction on TV shows, video games, and movies for client studios worldwide. Founded in 2001, the company has done work for high-profile clients, including Nickelodeon, Sony Computer Entertainment, Mircrosoft, and Electronic Arts.
