ERIC BAIR
Mini Biography

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, writer/director Eric Bair found his passion for
storytelling and filmmaking at a young age when he saw one of his favorite films, “Who
Framed Roger Rabbit”. At 12 years old he wrote his first feature length screenplay using a
copy of “Return of the Jedi” to teach himself the screenwriting format. Once he got his hands
on his first camera in High School, he took his passion further by producing films with his
friends that ranged from comedies to action to horror. After graduating from Archbishop Mitty
High School, he attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco to hone and
advance his skills as a filmmaker. During his years of study, he created numerous short films
including his senior thesis project, "Living Dreams". This film brought his first award win for
Best Director at the Academy of Art Filmfest and he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts
Motion Picture & Television Degree in Directing. That summer, he traveled to Southern
California to further pursue his career with the creation of multiple spec commercials
including the top ten winning "Dibs, too Good to Gamble" and filmed two back to back award
winning short films: the horror, "Derelict Abyss" and the comedy, "Male Order Bride". In
addition to bringing “Descensus ad Mortem” to life, he is currently developing a TV series as
well as various feature length screenplays.

"If I can touch someone emotionally with my
films; make them think, laugh or cry; then I
know that I have succeeded as a filmmaker.
And there is no better reward then that grab
for the Kleenex or that chuckle that no one
can hold in!
" -Eric Bair
