  • From overseeing the creative production and development processes for the studio's feature projects, to shaping the creative teams behind each project and growing the studio's creative talent pool, Damaschke plays an integral role in bringing the DreamWorks worlds to the big screen.

    Damaschke joined DreamWorks in 1995 and served as a producer and executive producer on a number of the studio's feature films before being named Head of Creative Production in 1999, Head of Creative Production and Development in 2005 and Co-President of Production for Feature Animation and President of Live Theatricals in 2007.

    During his tenure at DreamWorks Animation, Damaschke has overseen the release of a range of key DreamWorks titles, from the Academy Award®-winning blockbuster Shrek in 2001 through to the upcoming release of the highly anticipated How to Train Your Dragon 2.
