Hey, I'm Edd!

Portland, Oregon

Born in Spokane, Washington, Edd Blott spent his entire childhood telling stories. His grandfather, a painter, was instrumental in crafting Edd's love for the arts. In high school, his artistic focus shifted to cinema when he was first exposed to Jean Renoir's Grand Illusion. A newly born cinephile at that moment, his film school was studying world cinema from all eras and experimenting with whatever camera he could get his hands on. His credits include writing and directing the award winning social issues feature film A Tale of Delight, which can now be viewed online for free under a Creative Commons License. When he's not working on his next film project, he dates his wife Heather, helps raise their five kids, and advocates for mental health awareness. He doesn't remember the last time he slept!
