  • Brad Lewis leaves Pixar for Digital Domain in Florida

    Pixar vet Brad Lewis, who co-directed Cars 2 with John Lasseter, is changing gears and is joining Digital Domain's Tradition Studios, where he will direct animated features.

    During his 10-year run at Pixar, Lewis also produced the Academy Award-winning Ratatouille, which made $624 million worldwide. Last weekend, Cars 2 opened number one at the domestic box office and has since grossed more than $115 million worldwide.

    Lewis is a significant addition to Digital Domain Media Group's Florida-based Tradition Studios, a young entity that opened in 2009 to develop and co-produce original, family-oriented CG features. No titles have yet been announced. The studio is constructing a 115,000-square-foot facility, which is scheduled to open in Port St. Lucie in December.

    Digital Domain--partly owned by director Michael Bay--also includes Digital Domain flagship VFX facility in Venice, which has handled VFX for movies such as Tron and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

    Lewis said in a statement: “I am excited to join a company with Digital Domain's talent and expertise and to have an opportunity to be a part of its team in creating family-friendly stories and adventures.”
