Bobby Eugene Erickson was born May 7, 1972 in Rochester, MN to working parents Elmer Erickson (OTR Driver) and Norma (Bernell) Eitland (Manufacturing/Homemaker). He started showing his personality at a very early age; performing skits with family, and playing diverse music on a wide variety of musical instruments. Bobby excelled in music, and was offered a recording contract in 2010; which he declined, to focus more time and effort toward his wife and two children and pursuit of acting and screenwriting. As a devout Christian, and strong family man, Bobby continues to pursue opportunities that are family friendly, and can be enjoyed by all ages. His first big-screen primary acting role was in The Man In The Empty Chair (2014); which also was his first credited piece as a music composer. Through networking, Bobby caught the attention of Dan Chinander, being cast in several commercial roles for local TV and Internet projects. This work has led to further feature film castings in Street Sings: Homeless But Not Hopeless (2016), Blues Man (2016), Miles Between Us (2015), TV commercials and documentaries with ABC and History Channel (H2), as well as commercial voiceover work for National and Regional commercials, and for the animated TV Series Messenger Of Light (2016). In 2017, Bobby founded, and is the President of Faith in Family Films, LLC (https://www.facebook.com/Faith-In-Family-Films-124788708920642/). As the Executive Producer & Director, Bobby is focused on family-friendly and faith-based projects. He has built solid relationships with local businesses, crew, and actors, with a desire to bring family friendly and faith based film making to Southeast MN and the upper Midwest. Bobby has had 2 screenplays made into movies, has a diverse writing portfolio (film, TV, shorts), and has teamed on several miscellaneous projects as an Executive Producer, Director, Actor, Voice Talent, Music Composer, Editor, Promoter, Production Asst, as well as Misc Crew and Consult. As a big advocate for agile process, and collaboration, Bobby welcomes discussions to create further opportunities for individuals, via moral, thought provoking projects. Bobby is available for work directly, or through his agents in Minneapolis, MN. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to discuss your project, or your vision for a project with him.
