Big field

“In this ever-growing field of dot com this and dot com that, few executives have the proven track record of Joshua,” said Digital Domain CEO Scott Ross. “He brings the perfect blend of entertainment, storytelling, technology and interactivity to Digital Domain.”

The company is expanding into the emerging broadband Internet arena, completing its first broadband interactive commercial for General Motors.
