Eric Darnell is the writer/director of Madagascar (2005), Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008) and this summer’s major release Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted. Eric’s feature directorial debut was as co-director of Antz, the very first computer-animated feature produced by Pacific Data Images/DreamWorks Animation, in 1998.
After graduating with degrees in broadcast journalism from the University of Colorado and in Experimental Animation from the California Institute of the Arts, Eric joined Pacific Data Images, where he worked as a character animator on the 1991 Hanna-Barbera Halloween special The Last Halloween and was the writer/director/lead animator for the Pacific Data Images short film Gas Planet. In addition to his directing duties, Eric also wrote the song “Welcome to Duloc” for the 2001 film Shrek, for which he also worked as a story artist.
