Eric Norcross is an award-winning filmmaker, published writer, and podcaster. He started making films in 1998 as a student at the Portland Arts & Technology High School in Portland, Maine, where he won his first recognitions for his experimental work. He made his first narrative film, Sixteen Stories his senior year, with a cast of over twenty, including local celebrities. 

Since then, Eric has created more than 25 films, some features, some shorts and experimental works.

In September 2020, Eric started The Eric Norcross Podcast. Eric's podcast is  multi-subject, though founded on the idea of having transparent conversations about the art life, and the trials and tribulations of being an artist in today's world.
