Eric Lee

Animation Director
VFX Director

Eric serves as our in-house magician and we're not quite sure if he’s actually human; if you've had a chance to work with him, then you know how true that statement is. For more than two decades, Eric's brilliance in animation and technology has propelled every (yes, every) project to new levels of success. His passions include comics, toys and most of all, character animation.


Greg Vennerholm

Managing Director
In-house Disney Parks Tour Guide

Greg is a 'creative engineer' and brings decades of consumer brand experience (across a diverse roster of major brands) to every project… from design & interactive to storytelling & production. He’s worked in most-all facets of the creative world and brings that know-how to the team. (If prompted, he'll provide BTS Walt Disney World trip planning strategies you won't see on TikTok.)
