business affairs & operations manager
Eric graduated with honours from Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and began his career as a Sound Assistant on North of 60. He quickly worked his way up in the industry to become Edmonton’s leading Locations Manager. Working closely with the Edmonton and Alberta Film Commissions, Eric was instrumental in bringing many quality film productions to Edmonton including The Assassination of Jesse James starring Brad Pitt. He then moved into Production Managing and Line Producing before he co-founded Mosaic Entertainment in 2006. As COO of Mosaic Entertainment, Eric produced countless hours of online content, three mobile games, three feature length films, and nearly 100 episodes of television including the multiple Canadian Screen Award nominated series Tiny Plastic Men (Amazon Prime). He has been instrumental in changing the face of financing, format, and distribution strategies for lower budget productions, working closely with public and private financiers to find win-win situations that stretch the dollar while still creating high-quality productions in a increasingly competitive industry.
