Eric Frith is an editor, producer, and director in the Seattle independent film industry, creating projects that have screened at top film festivals, received numerous awards and been acquired for distribution nationally and internationally (Miramax, Dream Entertainment, Off the Fence). Eric has also created corporate marketing and media (Microsoft, Starbucks, WaMu, AT&T, among others).

In 2000 Eric partnered with his wife, Holly Taylor, as a principal in Byrd Productions, and as a Director and Editor for the company. He started out in the film and video business as co-owner of Bent Nail Productions, where he directed projects for clients such as R.E.I., Columbia Sportswear, and Seattle Arts Museum/African American Heritage Museum. In the early nineties Eric’s love of editing led him to focus on post production; he became Post Production Supervisor/Editor for Seattle based Merwin Creative and later held the same position for Cesari Response Television. With these companies, Eric was post supervisor/editor for programs airing on every major network station as well as Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, Lifetime, Bravo and KCTS and for clients such as Microsoft, Compaq, Discovery Health Channel and Clorox.
