Eric spent his formative years in Washington, D.C. and Maryland. A product of the University of Southern California’s undergraduate film production program, his curiosity led him to Paramount Pictures’ (at the time) newly-founded Insurge division, where he learned of an (at the time) up-and-coming producer on the Paramount lot: Jason Blum.
Eric began working at Blum’s Blumhouse Productions, intent on finding a way to employ the micro-budget horror model for genre films in the independent space.
After being a part of eight feature films under Blum’s banner, Eric ventured out to produce independently. With the knowledge of turn high-concept low-budget films into massive box office successes, Fleischman raised private equity and began producing edgy, bold and unconventional genre films.
