DreamWorks Animation topper Jeffrey Katzenberg will be feted with the inaugural 3D Visionary Award at the fourth annual 3D Entertainment Summit, set for Sept. 20-22 at the Hollywood and Highland Center.
Katzenberg, who has been a keynote speaker at past 3D Entertainment Summits, will address the confab through taped remarks on Sept. 21. Vfx and 3D veteran Phil McNally, who has collaborated with Katzenberg on such pics as “Shrek Forever After” and “How to Train Your Dragon,” will accept the kudo on Katzenberg’s behalf.
“No one is more knowledgeable or passionate about the global possibilities of 3D entertainment than Jeffrey,” said Summit co-producer Bob Dowling.
Extensive footage from the upcoming DWA pic “Puss in Boots” will be screened at the confab.
The 3D Entertainment Summit is produced by Unicomm and Bob Dowling Group and Variety.
