Born in Hong Kong at a very early age, Eric Chu quickly exhibited an interest in design and film. Even as a young child, directing seemed to be in his blood, but an uncooperative cast of plastic farm animals would prove to be an endless source of frustration for the young inexperienced artist and he vowed never to work with PVC again.
In the ensuing years, his preoccupation with film and storytelling would manifest itself throughout his high school years in the form of super-8 films. There, he experimented with the medium by which he would explore issues and ideas relevant to him during this stage of his life. His most politically-charged film of this period involved a G.I Joe and some leftover Halloween fireworks.
From 1982-84 Eric turned his back on the industry, preferring instead to stifle his creative tendencies by attending The Emily Carr College of Art, where he was exposed to performance art, obtuse poetry and conceptual pieces. After this profoundly formative period he decided to move on, as he was unable to keep a straight face.
Since then, Eric has been in the film and animation business for nearly 30 years, starting at Nelvana Ltd back in 1985 where he worked on such projects as DROIDS, BEETLEJUICE, and countless others.
In 2002 he found himself doing concept designs for the new BATTLESTAR GALACTICA where he was responsible for visualizing the look of the new Galactica, the Cylons, Raiders, Basestars, and consequently upset millions of die-hard fans of the original series.
Currently, he has several projects in various stages of development, including working with Anderson Entertainment on the upcoming puppet-based SF series, Firestorm. Back in his element, he is attempting to bring back the kinds of films he grew up loving as a kid... those with plastic toys and explosives.
