Three films in which Digital Domain Media Group played a role in are under consideration for an Academy Award.
Digital Domain, which recently completed construction of its $40 million Tradition Studios facility in Port St. Lucie, operates five facilities in North America in addition to its facility here.
At least some work on the film "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" was done at Digital Domain here. Other films under Oscar consideration in which Digital Domain employees were involved include "Real Steel" and "X-Men: First Class."
In all, 10 films are under consideration for the visual effects Academy Award. Five films will be selected as finalists for the award before the awards show Feb. 26.
Digital Domain CEO John Textor said, "It would be incredibly meaningful for everyone at Digital Domain — all of our artists and employees here in Florida and worldwide — to have our work recognized. It would testify that the work we've been doing is recognized as the top in the industry."
Win or lose, we're expecting big things from Digital Domain and its presence on the Treasure Coast.— From the Daily News' partner Scripps newspapers in Vero Beach, Stuart and Fort Pierce
