DreamWorks Animation plans to open studio in China

DreamWorks Animation SKG aims to build an animation studio in Shanghai in a further effort to plumb the vast Chinese economy.

The Glendale-based studio, which recently announced a deal with online video site Youku.com to distribute its "Kung Fu Panda" movies in China, is recruiting executives to run a studio that would produce animated movies and TV shows catering to the Chinese market, said a person familiar with the plans who was not authorized to speak about them.

DreamWorks has tapped RSR Recruiting of Los Angeles to recruit staff to run the facility.  COMPANY TOWN
