Eric Gladstone is a writer, director, development specialist, and voice actor born and raised in Los Angeles, CA.
Before graduating college, Eric held two summer internships with major television productions: Avatar: The Last Airbender, Nickelodeon’s widely acclaimed anime-inspired series, and Adult Swim’s eclectic Tim & Eric: Awesome Show: Great Job! which guest starred personalities such as John C. Reilly and Jeff Goldblum.
Eric created his own major at the University of California, Berkeley, which drew from the studies of cognitive science, linguistics, political science, and world mythology–how stories affect the brain, leading to political action.
A skilled graphic designer, Eric used his knowledge of InDesign, Photoshop, and Adobe Illustrator to create presentational decks for companies and individuals. One raised seed money for budding geek culture portal Geeknation.com and another helped secure a directorial position for writers John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein on their New Line comedy Vacation (2015). He plays a bear in the film. He also created decks for Spider-Man Homecoming (2017) and for Oscar nominee Courtney Hoffman for her FOX’s Directing Workshop for Women project.
Eric was the senior voice-over dialogue writer for Gazillion’s Marvel Heroes franchise where he wrote over 25,000 lines for members of The X-Men, The Guardians of the Galaxy, and The Avengers while working closely with narrative designers. The game launched June 4, 2013, and closed on November 27, 2017, and won multiple industry awards. During his tenure, Eric directed multiple VO sessions with some of the best actors in the industry, such as Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, Steve Blum, Dee Bradley Baker, and many more.
Eric worked directly under comic book legend Stan Lee at POW! Entertainment for over six years, where he was a creative editor and content creator, responsible for diverse tasks, such as managing photography, video editing, account management, file systems management, content development and personally assisting Stan in day-to-day tasks. Many of the photos Eric took can be seen in Taschen’s The Stan Lee Story, completed shortly before Lee’s death.
Eric served as a Writers’ PA for the DC Universe show Titans, and as a production coordinator in the graphics department of Buddha Jones, a full-service ad agency with clients such as Disney, Netflix, Amazon, HBO, Warner Bros, and Universal. Trailers he worked on could be seen at the 2019 Super Bowl, The Oscars, Emmys, Game Awards, and theaters everywhere.
He writes comics, including No Holds Bard, about the iambic adventures of William Shakespeare, which was the subject of a successful Kickstarter in 2018. He has also written Strike 3, Deadly Game, It’s All in a Smile, Muscle Mime, Space Mule, and his own Zine about his favorite grocery store, Trader Joe’s.
Eric is a voice-over artist, who has studied with Richard Horvitz and Crispin Freeman, and dreams of voicing his own cartoons one day.
A video game enthusiast, he loves JRPGs such as Persona 5 and online team games such as Overwatch. He has won several fighting game tournaments, and specializes in Dragon Ball FighterZ.
