The Team

President 

 

Joel Eisenberg considers himself one of EC's biggest fans. He is an avid movie buff, loves horror novels and wishes he never gave up on those Karate classes years ago. He ran the LA Marathon (and completed the course) in 2005, celebrated at Taco Bell and temporarily lost his Eye of the Tiger (aka went downhill from there). Now 40 pounds above his glory weight, he promised his wife that he'll complete the 2010 LA Marathon, or he'll buy her a new Lamborghini.

Otherwise, Joel is an entrepreneur, a writer and teacher. He has been writing professionally since 1986 in varied media, starting as a columnist for a series of national sports-entertainment periodicals, and segueing to independent feature film assignments. Joel has written or co-written several full-length screenplays, many on assignment or optioned from spec, sold or produced, including the multi-award-winning drama "Out of the Black," starring Oscar nominee Sally Kirkland, Tyler Christopher, Sally Struthers and Dee Wallace Stone. He is the former Director of the San Diego Film Festival Screenplay Competition, and has written numerous marketing plans and sponsorship proposals for businesses nationwide.

Joel recently executive produced the acclaimed "April Showers" (http://www.aprilshowersmovie.com/), based on the Columbine school shootings tragedy. Upcoming projects include "Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines," Joel's screenplay based on the creator of EC Comics, to be directed by the legendary John Landis.

Joel has written or contributed to several books, including "How To Survive A Day Job," "Tales of the Dead" (a republication of the long-lost book of German ghost stories that inspired Mary Shelley to write "Frankenstein") and "Championship Networking." He has written over thirty commercial media spots through advertising agency Image Display Group, for such clients as "McDonalds." Joel has also worked in production finance, raising millions of dollars in development funds for features including "The Dark Mist," narrated by Charlton Heston, and "Lancelot: Guardian of Time." He has successfully marketed various projects to Public Television supporters for several million dollars in national and local program funding, including "California's Gold" with Huell Howser, "American Playhouse," Masterpiece Theater" and "The Puzzle Place."

In 2004, Joel was hired by a private party to identify, organize and archive a substantial lot of original handwritten John Steinbeck materials, referred to by a noted historian as one of the most important literary finds of the century.

He supports Special Education programs, and worked as a teacher for at-risk youth, including gang members, drug abusers and victims of physical abuse, in such avenues as Creative Writing. He is an in-demand speaker who has spoken for arts and educational organizations nationwide, on topics as diverse as Maverick Career Strategies For Creative Artists, and Self-Perpetuating Marketing For The Busy Entrepreneur. 

Joel is the President of All Cities Media, a national film-related networking organization. He is presently set to produce the sequel to the Oscar-winning "Road to Perdition," and a follow-up to "Drugstore Cowboy."

Vice President of Development

 

A recent graduate of Temple University, Corey moved to Los Angeles from the great city of Philadelphia.  He’s ecstatic to be part of the team at EMO Films and start making his dreams into a reality.

He has a passion for writing, which he likes to think he inherited from his grandpa, William Gaines.  Thanks to him, Corey’s been surrounded by vampires, zombies, and werewolves ever since he can remember and he’s proud to say that a decapitated Crypt Keeper head has been hanging above his bed since the tender age of twelve.  He believes a morbid sense of humor is a sensible one.

Corey aspires to be a screenwriter someday soon and break in his “networking shoes” that Joel Eisenberg has so graciously given him.  He’s still getting used to the Californian lifestyle, but is a firm believer of taking everything in stride.

Dogs, comics, great food and movies are some of Corey’s favorite things, and he hopes to have his grandpa’s stamp tree on his desk one day.
