The DreamWorks "Boy on the Moon Logo"

DreamWorks SKG (Spielberg, Katzenberg, Geffen) is a Big Ten studio in the United States of America which develops, produces, and distributes films, music, and television programming.

The initials "SKG" stand for the company's co-founders, (Steven Spielberg (movie director and co-founder of Amblin Entertainment), Jeffrey Katzenberg (former head of Walt Disney Pictures) and David Geffen (founder of Geffen Records)) in October 1994 with financial backing from Paul Allen (co-founder of Microsoft).

DreamWorks Records never lived up to expectations and was sold in October 2003 to Universal Music Group which now operates the label as DreamWorks Nashville.

The studio has had its greatest financial success with movies, specifically animated movies. Shrek 2 (2004) is the highest grossing animated film of all time. Based on this success, DreamWorks Animation, Inc. is planning to separate from DreamWorks SKG and become its own publicly traded company. In fact, DreamWorks has emerged as the main competitor to Pixar in the age of computer-generated animation.
