Flier oversees all advertising and videogame visual effects and production at Digital Domain and Mothership. A 20-year veteran brand strategist and marketer, Flier joined the company in 2011 as Executive Producer. He was instrumental in building the division’s client base and expertise in the creative development and production of videogame content for Activision, Electronic Arts, 2K Games, Microsoft and other top publishers, developers and ad agencies. In 2012 he was elevated to VP. Prior to Digital Domain Flier co-founded boutique games marketing and production agency Secret Identity. He was also the VP of Interactive Entertainment at 3D imaging company 3DV Systems, which was sold to Microsoft and its technology became part of the Kinect system. He spent several years at DDB Worldwide, was a VP at Creative Domain’s Interactive Entertainment Division (now Trailer Park), and has held marketing and production roles at DreamWorks Interactive.

“It’s been fantastic taking Digital Domain’s legendary brand and creativity into the games space and building a new base of loyal clients,” said Flier. “I’m privileged to have the opportunity to bring a fresh approach to the broader platform of the advertising industry – to offer production companies, agencies and brands all of the quality and pedigree they expect from DD, the best talent in the business and a great client experience.”

Clotiaux, a veteran VFX executive credited on more than 35 feature films in a 25-year career, oversees all visual effects feature film production at Digital Domain’s California and Vancouver studios. He was EP of Digital Domain’s Feature Film division from 2007 to 2009 and rejoined the company as VP of the division in March 2013. Prior to that he was President of Global VFX Production at Prime Focus Group. Clotiaux has also served as Senior VFX Producer at Sony Pictures Imageworks/Columbia Pictures and as a VFX Producer for Warner Bros. Pictures, 20th Century Fox, InterMedia Films and Columbia Pictures/Tristar. His credits include Avatar, Spider-Man 3, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, The Matrix: Reloaded and Revolutions, Independence Day and other top features, commercials and trailers.

Clotiaux said, “We're engaged at every level to improve efficiency, re-shape our internal show models and build greater transparency with our clients. At the same time we are growing the expertise and capacity in our Vancouver studio. This, together with our new ownership, our recent great work for Warner Bros., our recently completed 'Enders Game' co-production, as well as our in-production features for Fox and Disney and we're on a solid path moving forward. I'm proud and excited to be taking on a new role with this great DD team."
