“Some of the same features that observers credited for Disney Animations’ success – large staff, large budgets, and lots of time – were blamed for its demise” (pg. 2). In the late 1990s, Disney set up a lab to work on their first 3D CG film but it wasn’t as big of a success as their other movies. Because many staff members needed to be retrained for this new technology, movie releases were pushed back. Throughout this period, Disney relied on revenue and characters produced by a company who excelled in 3D CG animation, Pixar.
In late 1999 to 2000, the digital animation world was on a huge surge, along with 3D and Web animation, other businesses were opening up in hopes of doing work for the bigger companies, for example, Warner Brothers Animation, DreamWorks SKG, and especially Disney. In 1998, FOX decided to have Film Roman, INC., work on season 1 of The Family Guy, we decided to ship our work to smaller companies to get the bulk of the production done, quickly and efficiently. We found out China, India, Philippines, and other countries were opening up studios and purchasing USAnimation to service their work. We looked into a company, Color Chips, in Hyderabad, India. They were well-managed, experienced animators, and have licensed over 40 USAnimation computers, meaning there would be 40 people working in production and would be a lot quicker to complete.
Building the Lionsgate Brand Building the Lionsgate Brand Lionsgate has used various elements of marketing communication (MC) to build their brand equity. Lionsgate has achieved this by "combining the flexibility and entrepreneurial culture of an independent with the financial and strategic relationships of a major studio and the structure and consumer focus of a top digital ag.e" (Corporate.Lionsgate.com, para. 1). Lionsgate recently had a $400 million profit margin within 12 months and had a box office market share of 7% in 2009. This is due to Lionsgate's acquisitions of other entertainment companies, broader range of audience, the positioning into horror film franchises, Indie films and their fresh logo design.

People were enjoying life as these new changes gave the USA a major jump in its economy in this short period. One reason why it is accurate to call America in the 1920’s ‘The Roaring Twenties’ was because of the sudden upsurge in the film industry. 1,000 black and white silent movies were made in America.

How the film 'Shrek' parodies the traditional fairytale In 1994 Jeffrey Katzenberg left disney after a decade of service to the famous animation corporation "Walt Disney", after being denied his much anticipated promotion to second in command to Micheal Eisner. He then formed DreamWorks SKG; Spielsberg, Katzenberg, Geffen as Disneys rival animators. Dreamworks produced this animated film because it challenged the typically predictable fairytale story of “Walt Disney” productions. Dreamworks had to make a big movie so it could create an impact into the world of media like their rival company Walt Disney. They produced this type of animated film because it would appeal to a mass audience, ranging from the elderly, surprisingly entertaining the middle age adults and of course the children who are the main targeted audience.
