Digital Domain (website here) is a California-based effects studio. Originally a collaboration between James Cameron, Stan Winston and former head of ILM Scott Ross. Cameron and Winston joined shortly later[[/note]] in 1992. Since then, the company has provided effects for over eighty films, multiple commercials and over a dozen games.

In 2006, leading shareholders Cox and IBM took control of Digital Domain and sold the company to Wyndcrest Holdings, LLC (led by director and reoccurring client Michael Bay, former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino, and technology entrepreneur John Textor).

On September 6, 2012, John Textor and Michael Bay resigned, as Textor made a proposal to purchase the company and replace the company’s toxic predatory lenders. On September 11th, 2012, the board decided instead to restructure the company through "Chapter 11" bankruptcy which allowed them to sell DD to two major shareholders originally brought in by Textor. They shut down the Florida studio (the ones in LA, Asia and Vancouver are still open), became tangled in lawsuits between longtime partner Prime Focus and South Korean firm Samsung, against creditor/shareholder Legendary Pictures and has since become a turning point in Florida's history.
