Edricdale Silla


Edricdale Silla was born and raised a stones throw from San Francisco, in the small yet amiable town of Daly City, California. In order to survive the harsh winters that sustain year round, Edric took shelter indoors practicing the clarinet, playing video games, dueling in trading card matches, and or course, fermenting a deep affection for film.

A great change of pace (and weather) came upon his acceptance into the University of California at Irvine to study studio art. His horizons expanded exponentially as he was immersed in the world of filmmaking, graphic animation, and what it feels like to sweat.

Edric has worked with Morgan Spurlock on Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope and regularly films and edits commercial and entertainment videos for the good people at Synergistic Resources. Edric vows to never make a film with a story not worth telling and lives by the K.I.S.S. principle: Keep It Simple, Stupid.

Achievements/Awards?

On the day of my graduation I was awarded with a small statue of a man dipped in glorious gold. The plaque read “Best Graduate”. The bottom read “Universal Studios.” Thanks, Mom!

Movie that made you cry like a baby?

Phenomenon when I was 6-years-old. John Travolta dying to the tune of Change the World by Eric Clapton? Come on.

Strange quirk or personality trait?

I sometimes visualize conversations or situations in my head as if they were like a scene in a movie. When I respond (in my fantasy) I sometimes adjust my physicality and expression in real life to fit the scenario as it unfolds. Interestingly enough, no one seems to notice when I do this.
(Actually we do Edric. We just savor the moment to laugh at later.)
