The Elegance of "the Berg"

It took Charlie Rose twenty years to book Jeffrey Katzenberg to sit down on his show for a chat.

It didn't (quite) disappoint Mr. Katzenberg discussed his career in animation starting at Disney where he took a huge liability (the animation department) that no one wanted to touch and reignited it into the fullest expression of its namesake.

Reflecting on his success -- Mr. Katzenberg considers himself most importantly a student of Walt Disney one of the greatest storytellers to ever practice in our business.

Interesting look into Mr. Katzenberg's thinking.

His life of "one door closes and another one opens" was exemplified when Mr. Katzenberg's firing paved the way for The dreamer, the builder and the architect to start Dreamworks.
