Senior Animator, Naughty Dog
Speaking at Animex Game
After acquiring a degree in Mechanical Engineering from UCLA in 1996, Eric decided to instead pursue a career in a different field of study, 3d animation. What had only been a hobby until then quickly became a full-fledged career that has been both extremely challenging and rewarding over the past 13 years.
After working for a number of years in the world of commercial production and other entertainment ventures at Threshold Digital Research Labs, Nickelodeon Digital, and Digital Domain, Eric joined Naughty Dog in 2003. He has since been deeply involved in the animation of cinematics for the game titles Jak 3, Jak X: Combat Racing, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, and most recently, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. In addition to animation work on cinematics, Eric has also acted as the lead facial animator for the titles in the Uncharted franchise. Visit www.naughtydog.com for more details.
