Highly dedicated, passionate, and goal-driven, Eric Almond is a spearheading Filmmaking Director with a sole mission to raise the industry bar. Native to the Southside of Chicago and holding strong cinematic values, Eric has an extensive directing background involving commercials, short films, and narration and holds the fundamental skills to create compelling productions that not only meet expectations, but exceed them every time.
Growing up, Eric always admired film production, but his ignited passion for it did not surface the same way you often see in successful directors. Instead of making an award-winning film that influenced him to make movies as a career, his love for filmmaking developed through his ardency for music. Music was a powerful outlet for Eric throughout his life, and the concept of being able to transform those harmonic tones into visual stimulations is what led him down the filmmaking career path. With this as his foundation, it became the catalyst for Eric to earn a Bachelor's degree in film video production from Columbia College Chicago, and he has been nothing but successful since.
Fast forward to today, Eric has directed countless short films, commercials, and music videos and enjoys every moment of the creative process. He takes pride in building cinematic images based on things that inspire him and strategically blending different vibes into one authentic piece that leaves lasting impressions. Overall, every film Eric directs paints an incredible picture that inevitably provokes emotional influence and invested attraction, and with his robust work ethic, immense drive, and devotion, he has quickly become a cornerstone professional within the filmmaking industry.
Whether it be brand videos, commercials, short documentaries, to web content, nothing makes Eric happier than being a valuable "storytelling" resource for others to reach their film objectives. He demonstrates his devotion by delivering professional, innovative, and statement-making productions that have been proven to convert and captivate audiences. In the end, despite if he is working alone or leading a respected crew, his clients have the solidifying confidence that their project goals are in the best possible hands to succeed.
