Since its founding in 1993 by film industry pioneers, Digital Domain has been a force and a change agent in the world of creative content. Multiple Academy Awards and nominations—for both visual effects and technology, and many other accolades speak to Digital Domain’s impact on the film industry. Titanic, I, Robot, The Day After Tomorrow, and Flags of Our Fathers are just a few of its 60+ film credits which introduced movie viewers to never-before-seen feats of digital wizardry.

Digital Domain is also a pioneer in the commercial realm, earning scores of Clio, AICP, Cannes Lion, Grammy, and MTV honors, and working with the industry’s top commercial directors on some of the world’s most memorable spots. Music videos for the Rolling Stones, Faith Hill, Nine Inch Nails, and many more artists feature Digital Domain’s work.

Ed Ulbrich oversees Digital Domain’s commercial, music video, and interactive businesses and executive produces select feature films—roles he has held since joining as a founding executive in 1993. He executive produced the Academy Award-winning visual effects for Titanic and What Dreams May Come, and Fight Club, Zodiac and Adaptation; music videos for The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Nine Inch Nails, and other artists; 500+ commercials for clients including Heineken, American Express, Coca-Cola, BMW, and Microsoft; and location based entertainment.

Prior to joining Digital Domain, Mr. Ulbrich was a commercial producer at the Leo Burnett Company and a digital artist at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications. In 2007, Mr. Ulbrich was named to the Creativity 50—top innovators in advertising and design. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Illinois.
