Digital Domain Expands into Vancouver
Borders has been working with Digital Domain in a consulting capacity architecting and planning the studio’s global expansion since early in 2009. She joined the company from DreamWorks Animation, where she was Head of Studio, overseeing the productions of Shrek The Third, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa and other productions. Prior to DreamWorks she was Head of Post Production at Revolution Studios, where she managed all post and visual effects work. Previously, she was VP of Lucas Digital and General Manager of Skywalker Sound, where she oversaw award-winning soundtracks for Saving Private Ryan, Titanic, Toy Story and Toy Story 2, Fight Club, A Bug’s Life and others. She received an Academy Award for Sound Effects Editing for Terminator 2: Judgment Day and was nominated for her work on Forrest Gump.
Borders said, “What impresses me most about Digital Domain is that it’s a group of people who truly want to do something different -- and are driven and nimble enough to achieve it. We’ve been working on taking the company into the global production community, to continue Digital Domain’s legacy as an innovator in visual effects and create opportunities to develop original content. The culture of ‘nothing is impossible’ is practically palatable here and I’m excited to kick off Digital Domain’s expansion.”
With the expansion, Digital Domain executive Mark Miller will now focus more of his time on development of original content as Executive Producer. Commercials Division President and Executive Producer Ed Ulbrich continues to oversee the company’s advertising and marketing operations and develop new cross-media projects with filmmakers.
Digital Domain earned a 2009 Academy Award® for Achievement in Visual Effects on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and recently completed visual effects for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and 2012. The company is in production on Tron: Legacy, and Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
