Shay at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con
Gina Shay is a producer at DreamWorks Animation specializing in animated feature films. Her multiple years of work in the animation field have afforded her much notoriety and has also, in 2011, resulted in her nomination for the Visual Effects Society Award for Outstanding Animation in an Animated Feature Motion Picture award due to her contributions for the 2010 film Shrek Forever After.
Most recently through Gina Shay's work as producer of DreamWorks' 2016 animated film Trolls, she has expressed owning a position that advocates for generating content that effects positive body images in youth. Gina Shay verbalized this notion at the DreamWorks Animation presentation in Hall H of the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con stating,
- "As filmmakers we feel like it's our responsibility to give girls memorable characters that don't make them feel inadequate in body image. My daughter's eleven, she has a really powerful mind and I would rather have her using it to be imaginative instead of obsessing in front of a mirror because all girls are beautiful."
Shay is divorced from Ralph Bakshi's son. She started her career as a production assistant on Bakshi's 1992 film Cool World. Her son, Miles Bakshi, provided the voice for a character in the DreamWorks Animation's film, The Boss Baby.
