How the Shrek does Jeffrey Katzenberg do it?

He has produced or green-lighted some of America’s biggest movie hits: Star Trek, Gladiator, The Lion King, American Beauty, Pretty Woman, Beauty and the Beast, Pulp Fiction, Toy Story, Shrek and dozens of others. He’s worked with business giants like Barry Diller, Michael Eisner, Steven Spielberg and David Geffen and has weathered the ups and downs of the entertainment business. He helped revive Walt Disney Studios, is credited with spurring the re-invention of animation and co-founded DreamWorks SKG. Now he’s the founder and CEO of DreamWorks Animation and has committed the studio to making 3-D movies only. He was an early and enthusiastic supporter of Barack Obama and is a leading philanthropist.

Find out what he likes best about his job and what’s on the horizon for the world’s largest animation studio when he speaks with Josh Tyrangiel, editor of Bloomberg Businessweek and an executive editor of Bloomberg News.
