Eric Christensen has been working on movies for over thirty years—everything from production assistant, to writer, to producer, to visual effects supervisor. He has also served as a board member for the Visual Effects Society.
In the 90's, Eric joined the team at Industrial Light and Magic where he eventually worked on over twenty feature films as a senior digital artist. While at Industrial Light and Magic Eric's feature film credits included Star Wars: Episode II, Narnia: Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe, Jurassic Park III and Mission Impossible III. Seeing a trend to ship excess visual effects work overseas, Eric decided to take on overseas outsourcing and formed a competitive visual effects company.
After years in the business, Eric had a talented Visual Effects core team and had built solid relationships with studios and producers. Factory VFX was born from those artistic roots and has grown into a world-renowned Visual Effects boutique shop that has worked on over 100 feature films, television shows and commercials.
Some clients include Columbia Pictures, Disney Pictures, New Line Cinema, Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios, and Twentieth Century Fox Studios. The Factory VFX studio is located in northern California in the heart of the Sonoma wine country. Recent projects include Tomb Raider, The Greatest Showman, Fast & Furious 8, Fences, Central Intelligence, Independence Day: Resurgence, The Mist and The Mummy.
