Eric has an extensive travel background and has lead international teams and projects with locales in the Pacific Rim, Africa, Europe, the Arctic regions, and the greater Middle East. During the Arab Spring in 2010, Galler was recruited by an Aussie mid-east outfit and spent 15 months in Arabia. There, he produced, fielded, scripted, edited string-outs, operated, and directed a full spectrum of interviews, over seventy.
Guiding performance and story from non-professional talent is one of his greatest strengths, and his talents shined in a region where truth is a masquerade of non-discloser. Subjects included the Prince and Princess of Jordan, Prime Ministers, archaeologists and scientists to nomadic tribal leaders and indigenous cave people. The cave dwellers were among his favorite, and through multiple visits, trust developed, which resulted in rare and moving testimonials.
Between interviews, Galler supervised 19 BBC Twig-It science pack revisions, directed recreations, 2D-3D animations, and motion capture of face and body. He lead exploration film teams across the eastern deserts to ancient subterranean sites and captured over 100 hours of aerial and ground B-roll for the BBC, the Royal family, the U.N., and other third party clients.
Galler's preceding assignment was field producing and heading production full time for Creative Differences D.C. division. The Emmy Award winning department housed development, production, and delivery for clients that included Discovery, Science Channel, Animal Planet, Military Channel, TLC, Travel, History, and Nat Geo. He interviewed contributors, developed story, worked heavily in delivery, and fielded numerous shows, including Discovery's Time Warp series (19 Ep). With a production crew of 28 persons, his team spent four months on location, which included 78 challenging high-speed photography days, where each morning introduced a new build, stunt, or science project.
Galler's portfolio includes; Discovery's Squid Invasion, Monsters Resurrected, Animal Planet's Jane Goodall's: Almost Human, Nat Geo's Nazi Scrapbook's from Hell and TLC's Feasty Boys Eat America!, Nat Geo's Archaeology, The Worlds Greatest Sites, Nat Geo's Polar Explorations, and Smithsonian's Visual Guide to the Universe, and Science of Flight to name just a few. Currently he is in development on Smithsonian's Oceans project.
