This chapter focuses on the challenges of establishing DreamWorks SKG. Spielberg took a three-year hiatus from directing to build up DreamWorks, which proved to be one of the busiest periods of his life, but one that made him anxious over his new responsibilities and the resulting distraction from his major focus as a filmmaker. The chapter asks: How did Spielberg manage to do all his ambitious work as a director while being involved with hundreds of other films and television programs in various production or executive capacities between 1997 and 2010, and while helping steer DreamWorks through some calamitous financial waters?
