Would you trust a squad of trash-talking Penguins to fly a plane? Probably not, but for Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, and Melman the giraffe there isn't much choice if they ever hope to see the Central Park Zoo again. Join your favorite Manhattan menagerie in The Art of Madagascar for a look into their wild ride from their first trip to the island paradise to their venture into the African savannah in the upcoming sequel Madagascar: the Crate Escape. The Art of Madagascar explores how the zoo comes to life featuring an untamed look into the visual effects and development from the Dreamworks team that brought you Shrek and Shark Tale. Discover how animators incorporated animal idiosyncrasies into each character, how digital avatars were tailored to voice actors, and the inside scoop on those darn penguins. The abundance of behind the scenes visuals, information, and special features in the The Art of Madagascar is sure to drive kids and anyone's creative curiosity wild.

Early in his career, Beck collaborated with film historian Leonard Maltin on his book Of Mice and Magic (1980), organized animation festivals in Los Angeles, and was instrumental in founding the international publication Animation Magazine. In the 1990s, Beck taught course on the art of animation at UCLA, NYU, and The School of Visual Arts.
