DreamWorks Animation is here in Singapore with a spectacular exhibit at Marina Bay Sands’ ArtScience Museum… y’know, the one that looks like a hatched dinosaur egg.
Featuring art and sculpts from the hit movies produced by DreamWorks Animation, as well in-depth looks into the process of making these films, the exhibition is more than worth its cost of entry. And while the exhibition is a sight to behold just walking around, the full experience is best felts when attending a guided tour on Saturdays at 5pm or Sundays at 11:30am.
The fun, however, does not end there. Far from, actually. With interactive segments already available, programmes on claymation and animation are also available on select dates!
Claymation Understand first-hand this fascinating form of animation and create a short film by moulding your own clay character.
Saturdays: 4, 18 & 25 July, 1, 8, 15, 22 & 29 August 2015 at 2:30pm
The Magic of Animation Workshop Learn about the beginnings of animation through fascinating still and moving footage, zoetrope demonstrations, and the opportunity to create your digital flip-book.
Sundays: 5 July, 9 & 23 August 2015 at 2:30pm
Both types of programmes only cost $5, but first requires purchase of the event tickets per entry.
In addition to these programmes, the ArtScience Museum will also be hosting a special screening of 5 movies selected by DreamWorks Animation, held in the Expression Gallery on Level 4.
Shark Tale – 11 July @ 2pm
Kung Fu Panda – 19 July @ 2pm
Chicken Run – 26 July @ 2pm
Megamind – 06 August @ 2pm
Wallace & Gromit – 30 August @ 2pm
While the tickets are sold at $21 for adults, $13 for children, and $17 for senior citizens, Singaporeans receive an additional discount. So be sure to bring along your ICs… or birth certificates…
Also, do keep in mind that while photography is allowed, flash photography is prohibited and videography can result in being eaten by a dragon.
I can’t entirely verify the last statement, but I heard a parent say that to a child, so I’ll assume it’s true.
