DigiDoug is the virtual version of Dr. Doug Roble, senior director of Software R&D at Digital Domain, the award-winning visual effects studio behind the characters and visual effects for movies like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Maleficent, Disney’s The Beauty and the Beast and Avengers: Endgame.
