Featured Member


Melbourne-based Eric Emerick has been making short films for 17 years. As with all Indie filmmakers he’s had to wear a few different hats - director, writer, editor, and sound recordist are just some of them. His latest short film, The Model, will play at 2018’s Melbourne Independent Filmmakers' Festival. He also volunteers for the festival, where he curates the submissions via FilmFreeway, and streams the red carpet ceremony. He is a member of Brevard Film and Talent and The Screenwriters of Brevard.
