Eric Goldberg

Goldberg grew up in Levittown, Pennsylvania and as a child moved to Cherry Hill, New Jersey where he attended Cherry Hill High School East. Goldberg later studied at Pratt Institute, where he majored in illustration. He first entered the industry in the mid-1970s working on Raggedy Ann and Andy for the Richard Williams studio, later moving to Williams’London studio and working his way up from assistant to director. During the 1980s, Goldberg set up his own London studio, Pizazz Pictures, to produce television commercials.
Subsequently, Goldberg closed his studio to work at Disney Animation Studios, Burbank, California to work on the film Aladdin, for which he became the lead animator on the character Genie, and later the lead animator on Phil in Hercules ( 1997). Goldberg was also the co-director of the 1995 Disney film Pocahontas. During his time as lead animator for the Genius, he also provided most of the original animation for MC Skat Kat’s “Big Time” music video, which was finished in 1992 but did not air.
