Producer/Director Eric Radomski, a three-time Emmy recipient, has an animation career that has spanned over two decades. Not afraid to push the creative envelope, he has focused on satisfying the evolving, tech-savvy tastes of an audience hungry for bold, arresting, and entertaining stories.
Radomski began serving as a consultant for Warner Bros. Animation in 2003 and is currently overseeing the production of several new series. Radomski debuted the hit Emmy-nominated action comedy series, XIAOLIN SHOWDOWN, on the Kids' WB! in the fall of 2003.
In 1998, Radomski joined Film Roman to head up the Company's restructured animation development efforts. During his four year stint as Executive Creative Director, his development slate included projects with some of the entertainment industries most recognized talents: Joss Whedon (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER), Mike Myers (AUSTIN POWERS), as well as Norman Lear and Howard Stern. As a founder of LEVEL13.NET, the company's Internet entertainment site, Radomski was able to shepherd new talent from around the world to produce unique and original properties outside the standard Hollywood model. Several projects developed under Radomski's watch have secured series status on major cable outlets including, TRIPPING THE RIFT, which can currently be seen on the Sci Fi Channel, while another short film, HAIRBALLS by Mr. Lawrence, continues to garner major animation and comedy awards. In 2001, Radomski directed an animated public service announcement for the Partnership for a Drug-Free America (PDFA) entitled THE WORKS, which was awarded two Crystal Communicator Awards. He also supervised all of the animation sequences on Jodie Foster's acclaimed THE DANGEROUS LIVES OF ALTAR BOYS. Radomski spent his last year at Film Roman creating and directing the short film, JORGE, which is currently gaining the attention of film festivals throughout the world.
Radomski's appetite for originality forced him to seek new challenges outside of the daytime animation world. In 1996 he was hired by the trend-setting HBO to produce and direct two late night series: Todd McFarlane's hugely popular SPAWN, for which Radomski received his third Emmy for Individual Achievement in Animation, and SPICY CITY with the Godfather of adult animation, Ralph Bakshi.
When Warner Bros. resurrected its animation division in the early 90's, Radomski was brought in to work on Steven Spielberg's Emmy-winning TINY TOON ADVENTURES. Shortly thereafter, Radomski was asked to develop and produce BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES; eighty-five episodes later, he won the first of three Emmy awards. Radomski continued on with BATMAN, producing and directing the critically acclaimed animated feature MASK OF THE PHANTASM. During his tenure with Warner Bros., Radomski also directed Steven Spielberg's FREAKAZOID, for which he received his second Emmy award.
Radomski began his animation career in the early 80's as an apprentice animator at a small commercial studio in his hometown of Cleveland. After two years, Radomski headed west to join Rick Reinert Pictures as an assistant director on a variety of network and cable properties.
Throughout his illustrious career, Radomski's goal has always been to bring compelling content to a sophisticated audience. This goal has garnered him five individual Emmy Nominations, two Annie Award nominations and has been nominated three times for the Golden Reel Awards. One of his treasured nods is for MINDLESS BOB, a collaborative effort with DEVO founder Mark Mothersbaugh, for which Radomski was awarded Best Experimental Film at the Brooklyn Film Festival.
