Creative & TEchnical


Eric Schirtzinger

I am a visual storyteller, musician, and computer engineer. I have been creating my whole life; when I was 10 I read program manuals for Macromedia Flash and did 3D modeling in Blender. I have a fascination for all things creative. I enjoy the learning process and the satisfaction of seeing the quality of my work grow over time. With every project I take on, I do my best work not only for my client's sake, but also for myself. My passion for excellence and growth drives me to deliver the best work possible. I hope you enjoy exploring the site!  



An unshakable passion for filmmaking has taken me places I never would have imagined. I have directed many short films, such as the award winning film below, as well as ad spots for brands such as American Family Insurance & the Big Ten Network. I, along with a few fellow filmmakers, created the production company Bascom Brothers to create high quality commercial content for brands across the United States. 



Music has been at the core of who I am ever since I can remember. I’ve been fortunate to have played beautiful venues, from the Jazz Showcase in Chicago, to the back of a historic tour boats in Lake Geneva WI. I've mixed records that have over 250,000 streams on Spotify, tracked drums on numerous albums, and made lifelong friendships with many other passionate musicians. 

Drum Set

Studied Jazz drum set for two years at UW Madison under the direction of Johannes Wallmann and Keith Lienert. Been playing shows since freshman year of high school in groups ranging from punk to pop.   



Mixed/mastered a few full length albums as well as numerous standalone tracks. Experience tracking live bands and acoustic instruments.  


Staring In Spaces

Currently, I have been working with the pop duo, “Staring in Spaces”. I mixed and mastered their debut album “Stop Talking”, and have been performing the record with them as their drummer.   



Programming is what enables almost all we do in our day to day lives. Developing applications to improve how we interact with our devices, as well as how we create with our devices, is at the core of what excites me about computer science.  


Threads [ beta ]

Threads is an application that gives users a fun way of drawing in 3D. Wield a magic thread into infinite shapes and patterns. This oddly satisfying drawing toy will keep you mesmerized for ages.
