President Obama Will Visit DreamWorks Animation [UPDATED]

The White House announced today that President Obama will speak on November 26th about the economy at DreamWorks Animation in Glendale. “The motion picture and television industry is a growing industry, and continues to create thousands of jobs across the country,” a White House official told Variety. The evening before his DreamWorks speech, Obama will attend a fundraiser at the home of Inspector Gadget theme song composer and billionaire Haim Saban.

[UPDATE]: It looks like the visual effects industry wants to make the most of President Obama’s visit to DreamWorks. Stay tuned to the VFX Soldier Twitter account. It would be even more amazing though if all the DWA artists on campus choose to wear green to work that day!
