Erik Henry, Special Visual Effects

Erik Henry began his visual effects career at DreamQuest Images during the company's heyday. Arriving in 1988, he worked in visual effects editorial on James Cameron's underwater epic, The Abyss, then a year later on Total Recall. Both films earned DreamQuest the Oscar for best visual effects.

After several more films at DreamQuest, Henry moved from the vendor side to production side as coordinator for Academy Award-winning supervisor Mike Fink on Tim Burton's Batman Returns.

With experience gathered from over more than 25 feature films and television series, Mr. Henry was asked by HBO to supervise their presidential biopic John Adams, resulting in his first Emmy Award. Recently Mr. Henry was the senior supervisor and one of the creative producers of the Starz Inc. series Black Sails. The work earned Henry four Emmy nominations and his second Emmy Award. Presently he is the senior VFX Supervisor on Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan as well as a secret project at HBO.

Mr. Henry is honored to represent the Special Visual Effects Peer Group on the Television Academy's Board of Governors.
