Rise of the Guardians, the new animated feature from DreamWorks Animation, is a visually enthralling film based on William Joyce's The Guardians of Childhood book series, with Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and other beloved characters reinterpreted as action heroes in a parable about the ongoing struggle between good and evil. This gallery exhibition takes a look behind the scenes, revealing the innovative collaborative process behind the making of the film. Original artwork, both digital and hand-drawn, an exclusive time-lapse video presentation of in-process footage progressing to the finished film, and a revealing documentary that takes us into the DreamWorks Animation studio, show how the colorful world of the movie and its memorable characters were created.

Venue Description: Museum of the Moving Image advances the understanding, enjoyment, and appreciation of the art, history, technique, and technology of film, television, and digital media. In its expanded and renovated facilities - acclaimed for both its accessibility and bold design - the Museum presents exhibitions; screenings of significant works; discussion programs featuring actors, directors, craftspeople, and business leaders; and education programs which serve more than 50,000 students each year. The Museum also houses a significant collection of moving-image artifacts.
