Background: DreamWorks, LLC (also known as "DreamWorks Pictures", "DreamWorks SKG", or "DreamWorks Studios") is an American film studio that was established in 1994. It has produced or distributed more than ten films with box-office grosses totaling more than $100 million each. Its most successful title to date is Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen. DreamWorks began as an ambitious attempt by media moguls Steven Spielberg, Jeffery Katzenberg, and David Geffen (which is where the "SKG" insignia came from) to create a new Hollywood studio. On December 11, 2005, the founders agreed to sell the studio to Paramount Pictures. The sale was completed on February 1, 2006, but the studio became independent again in 2008. On February 9, 2009, DreamWorks struck a distribution deal with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (through their Touchstone Pictures banner), which has been effective since 2011. DreamWorks Animation was formerly a subsidiary of the studio until the two split into separate companies in 2004. DreamWorks Pictures is now legally known as "DW II Management, Inc." with the "DreamWorks" name and logo being used under license from DreamWorks Animation.

Dreamworks - CLG Wiki

Nicknames: "Little Boy Fishing on the Moon", "Fishing Boy", "DreamWorks Fishing Boy"

Logo: It starts out at night with a moon in a reflection of water, then we see a bobber and fishing reel. The camera angle then goes upwards to see a boy, sitting on top of a crescent-shape moon. Suddenly, a "D" appears with the scrolling of the letters. After the letters are scrolled, we see the "DREAMWORKS" text with "SKG" with lines on the left and right of it respectively, on the bottom of the "DREAMWORKS" text, and the text is set by the dark of night with clouds to accompany it.

Variant:
A short version of this logo was seen on trailers for films and at the end of movies released through Touchstone Pictures starting with I Am Number Four. However, Real Steel has the still version of this logo at the end.

Trivia
: The boy who is seen sitting on the moon is
William Hunt, the son of artist Robert Hunt.

FX/SFX: A combination of 2D and 3D animation. Produced by Industrial Light & Magic.

Music/Sounds: The only SFX is when the bobber hits the water, and it makes a splashing sound. A very nice piece of orchestrated music that starts out with a guitar tune, followed by a loud, majestic horn fanfare, and ending with another guitar tune. In recent years, the opening theme of the movie is often used. Composed by John Williams.

Music/Sounds Variant: On the 1997 film MouseHunt, the same music is heard, but the guitar section at the end is replaced with a horn section, and the pitch is lowered throughout the whole logo. The reason for this is unknown at this time.

Availability: Very common, particularly in movies such as Shrek and MouseHunt among others. It premiered on the 1997 film The Peacemaker (which is also DreamWorks' very first film) and has been used in nearly every DreamWorks film ever since. Was seen on some 2001 region 4DVD releases as well and pre-2004 DreamWorks Animation films.

Scare Factor: None, it's a favorite amongst the logo community.

"Music/Sounds Variant: On the 1997 film Mouse Hunt, the same music is heard, but the guitar section at the end is replaced with a horn section, and the pitch is lowered throughout the whole logo. The reason for this is unknown at this time." In this variant, the music pitch is already low or it gradually lowers itself?
