Eric Anderson is a two-time Emmy Award-winning director and editor for the Six Feet Under and Dexter main title sequences. He is currently creative Director at MPC Creative in Los Angeles. Prior to joining MPC, Eric was Creative director as well as a live-action director at Logan, yUco and Digital Kitchen. In pursuing his passion for new ideas and storytelling, Anderson has formed a formidable career path in music, editing and directing. After earning a B.F.A. in film and interdisciplinary studies from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, he quickly found success forming Pachyderm Recording Studios, which handled many iconic ’90s alt-rock albums, notably Nirvana’s In Utero and PJ Harvey’s Rid of Me. He was an engineer on Soul Asylum’s Grammy-winning album Grave Dancers Union. New York magazine profiled his work as something that can help save television, thereby naming him a “televisionary” alongside Tracy Morgan and Betty White. His work gained a “more highbrow and more brilliant” than Jay-Z on the New York magazine “Approval Matrix” — so there’s that! He has spoken internationally about title design and the creative process. In 2009 he was voted to the Executive Committee of the Title Design peer group for the Television Academy. In 2013 he was elected governor of the Motion + Title Design peer group, successfully creating a new Emmy Award for Motion Design in 2015.
