Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Oscar-winning visual effects expert Eric Brevig is a key figure in the resurgence of 3D photography. While attending the prestigious filmmaking school at UCLA in the late 1970s and early '80s, Brevig developed a fascination with the then-unfashionable 3D process. One of his first industry jobs upon graduation was supervising the 3D special effects on the Michael Jackson-starring "Captain EO" multimedia experience for the Walt Disney theme parks in 1986.
