My Latest Work



Academy Award®-winning visual effects supervisor Eric Barba, a 17-year Digital Domain veteran, was recognized with the film industry’s top honor in 2009 for his work on Director David Fincher’s Curious Case of Benjamin Button. He was the visual effects supervisor on Director Joseph Kosinski’s TRON: Legacy and Oblivion, and on Fincher’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. He also contributed his talents to Fincher’s Zodiac. Like many of the top directors he collaborates with, Eric is equally at home working in film and advertising. A graduate of the Art Center College of Design, Eric started his career at Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Imaging as a digital artist on sci-fi television shows. In 1996 he joined Digital Domain, where he supervised visual effects on dozens of commercials for Nike, Heineken, Adidas, Microsoft Xbox/Epic Games, and other leading brands. He has worked on many projects with David Fincher, including a multiple-award-winning spot for Adidas, the Nine Inch Nails music video “Only,” and spots for Nike, Motorola and HP. Eric’s own commercial directing credits include Nike’s “Birth of Speed,” Jaguar’s “Pool,” and campaigns for American Express, Cingular and Honda. Eric is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.
