Eric Tortora Pato
About + sobre
Eric Tortora Pato is a storyteller—but in a more useful sense, Eric is a filmmaker, Emmy®-winning animator, writer, illustrator, 2D and 3D concept artist, and producer. He also dabbles in sound and is addicted to collecting skills and hobbies. He plays a few different instruments, including the ukulele and programmable synthesizers, too.
Eric is currently based and working in New York City full time, where he is the Senior Video Producer and Motion Designer for Spectrum Science Communications and GHPR.
A proud Ibero-American/Portuguese Cultural Hispanic, Eric is a citizen of both the USA and the EU (via Portugal), and speaks some amount of English, Portuguese, and (increasingly) Spanish. Eric's writing and translating skills are higher than his speaking, but he's working on it. He wants to and will work wherever there is great work to be done and art to be made.
