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. Breaking into the industry with work on smaller films like the surprise hit vampire drama "The Lost Boys" and the campy cult favorite "Earth Girls Are Easy," Brevig went to the big leagues when he worked on James Cameron's 1989 underwater thriller "The Abyss." From there, he moved from blockbuster to blockbuster, including the science fiction smash "Total Recall" (for which he shared a Special Achievement Oscar for visual effects), Steven Spielberg's Peter Pan fantasy "Hook," the Will Smith vehicles "Men In Black" and "Wild Wild West" and Michael Bay's epic "Pearl Harbor"; on several of these films he also served as second unit director. Brevig made his move to feature film director with 2008's "Journey to The Center of the Earth," among the first digital 3D features. He followed that with the 2010 family comedy "Yogi Bear."
