Co-Founder, Head of Motion Pictures
Eric Martin is a writer, producer, and the current Head of Motion Pictures at Switch Up Entertainment. In the position, he is responsible for finding or developing short films or feature films, as well as overseeing current and future film productions produced for and by Switch Up Entertainment.
Born and raised in New Haven, Connecticut, Martin has been writing since he could hold a pencil and telling stories since he could talk. Starting with journaling and having an active imagination, Martin put all his ideas on paper. At the tender age of 11, he decided he wanted to be a writer. Since then he has attended Cooperative Arts & Humanities Magnet High, a performing arts school he graduated from in 2011 with a creative writing concentration.
After reading some of the television scripts Juwan had written, he wrote a series with Diamond Tillman and wrote and produced a short film with Juwan. It was because of this why Chambers asked him to co-found Switch Up Entertainment. In May 2020, Martin holds a B.S. in Psychology and has dreams of sharing his passion for words with the world to foster the dreams of the many young writers to come.
