Eric Goldberg, a veteran Director, Designer and Animator, has worked extensively in New York, London and Hollywood creating feature films, commercials, title sequences and television specials. He is equally at home with traditional hand-drawn animation and the most up-to-date computer animation, and has pioneered ground-breaking techniques in both worlds. Eric’s animation knowledge started early, creating flip books at age six and eventually creating Super-8 films from the age of thirteen. Eric’s Super-8 films won top prizes in the Kodak Teenage Movie Awards, including 1974’s Grand Prize of summer film courses at the University of Southern California.

After attending Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, where he majored in Illustration, Eric became a full-time assistant animator on Raggedy Ann and Andy, directed by Richard Williams. When the film was completed, Eric joined Williams in London as a director-animator on countless television spots. From there he moved to Los Angeles to serve as Director of Animation on the Emmy-winning Ziggy’s Gift, based on the popular newspaper cartoon.

Upon the completion of Ziggy’s Gift, Eric landed back in London, where he co-founded Pizazz Pictures, a commercials studio with a world-wide clientele. There he directed spots with such diverse techniques as cel-animation, brush-painting, stop-motion and pixillation, colored-pencil rendering, live-action and animation combinations, and digital compositing.
