All About erik
erik moe began his filmmaking career at the age of twelve when he made the Super 8 film Stony – an unpolished but enthusiastic tribute to the Rocky franchise. Despite the fact that it was mistakenly shot at a zippy 9-frames-per-second, the film went on to be featured on CBS’ Kidsworld. erik began his grown-up career as a copywriter at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners. There he created award-winning campaigns and was the creator and voice of the Bud Ice penguin – a deranged, flightless menace who stalked Bud Ice drinkers for many years.
It was at Goodby that erik wrote the cartoon novel, Tales of a Young Urban Failure (Chronicle Books), which became a cult phenomenon in the advertising industry and was optioned by Comedy Central. He then moved to Los Angeles where he became creative director for TBWA\Chiat\Day. It was around this time that he began directing commercials – finding pleasure in creating short-form narratives with a comedic bent. (And we do mean bent.) Today, he collaborates with agencies as a director and with clients and agencies as a consulting creative director.
Over the years, he has also created pilots, episodes and sketches for NBC, CBS, Paramount, Universal, and Comedy Central, among others. erik wrote and co-directed the feature film, No Sleep ’til Madison, which won the Sundance Channel Emerging Filmmaker Award. He has also written and directed short films, including Young Artie Feldman, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and was featured at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Even More About Erik
erik moe once held the hair of his favorite EP – previously his coworker – as she prayed to the porcelain god at the end of a particularly raucous joint birthday celebration. Thus began his career as a can-do kind of guy.
What’s that? You say you want him to handcuff a baboon to a nervous actress in a 110-degree garage in Pasadena? No problem. You feel the vegetarian actor should be forced to try to make his 34th consecutive bite shot for a KFC spot just a little more convincing? Can do. And now you want him to chase Lenny Kravitz down in the parking lot of the NFL Network and convince him to do some wild dialogue in his car because a funny line hit the copywriter after Lenny was wrapped? Okay!
From hair-holding to Kravitz-chasing, erik believes in committing to whatever it takes to get the job done. And as an experienced writer/director of short and long form film projects and TV pilots, he can bring another perspective and another collaborative voice that many agencies and clients find helpful.
Just ask lauren about that fateful June night.
