Jennifer Yuh Nelson

Jennifer Yuh Nelson recently directed DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda 3, the follow-up to the Academy Award®-nominated feature films Kung Fu Panda and Kung Fu Panda 2.  Jennifer made her feature film directorial debut with Kung Fu Panda 2, which earned more than $665 million at the worldwide box-office.

Jennifer has lent her talents to a variety of DreamWorks Animation’s motion pictures including:  2008’s Kung Fu Panda (as head of story), 2005’s Madagascar (as story artist), 2003’s Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (as head of story) and 2002’s Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron (also as story artist).

Prior to joining DreamWorks Animation, Jennifer worked at HBO Animation, developing various projects and short series.  She has worn many hats, serving as director, story artist and character designer for HBO’s animated series Spawn, which won an Emmy Award in 1999 for Outstanding Animated Program.

Jennifer’s career in animation has spanned several countries, including Korea and Japan, where she oversaw animation for HBO.  She has also worked in Sydney, Australia, serving as a story artist and illustrator for the live-action feature Dark City for Mystery Clock Productions.

Jennifer attended California State University, Long Beach where she received a BFA in illustration.  She has also published several independent comic books.

 

Over the past 20 years, DreamWorks Animation has introduced the world to a lovable curmudgeonly ogre, a noodle-slurping martial arts obsessed panda, and a bashful yet charismatic Viking hero and his pet dragon. Thanks to movies like Shrek, Kung-Fu Panda, Madagascar, and How To Train Your Dragon to name a few, DreamWorks Animation is recognized as one of the most admired family entertainment brands in the world. Dedicated to helping families dream and laugh together, DreamWorks creates and innovates 3D animated feature films, original TV series, and shorts, interactive media, live entertainment, themed experiences, consumer products, publishing, and trailblazing technology. Put all this together with DreamWorks Animations’ award-winning cast of artists, storytellers, and innovators, and, SKADOOSH – the result is a daily dose of laughter that comes to life across platforms, continents, and generations.
