Meet Eric Robison of IMAGIBOOM Entertainment in Pasadena

Today we’d like to introduce you to Eric Robison.

Eric, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was kicked out of Art Class in High School. I realized on that day that I become highly motivated when someone says that I can’t do something. This negativity inspires something inside me that screams… “Watch this!” Having said that, it still wasn’t easy. Years later, I was rejected by the Art Center College of Design and the Walt Disney Company. Did I quit?… No way, I still said to myself, “Someday! I will win it”. I was tenacious and ambitious, and after a few years and some maturing, I ended up at Art Center in Pasadena, graduating with Honors. Walt Disney Imagineering heard about me, and they hired me on the spot. Wow, I still can’t believe it.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I am so grateful to have gone to Art Center. I attribute my education there, as truly a launching pad for my success. It was a smooth road for a while because opportunities begin to unfold before you. One project leads to another in the entertainment industry, and before you know it, you are accelerating through a fun and exciting career. However, there were hiccups, and times when I needed to create something bigger, or stranger, or louder than what was around me; because competition in this industry is abundant and you need to stay “noticed”.

Please tell us about IMAGIBOOM Entertainment.
Creative Content is a broad term, but its an easy way to package all that encompasses Imagibooms’ goals. We are creators of Short Films and Artworks that make the World a more beautiful place. It’s an altruistic vision. The Business model takes a back seat to the Creative Model. It’s so important to us to “give” to our World the Creative Spirit and to leave the generations that follow us, inspiration and fuel for their Imaginations.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
A Trust in my subconscious. I open my spirit to accidental success and my art to happy accidents.

People overthink very often. If you’re truly letting go and trusting your feelings deep inside yourself, then Nature will provide a solution. If it doesn’t; then it’s not meant to be. I’ve painted with these feelings, and most of the time it works. Those days when it doesn’t arrive? I move on.

And lastly, a Passion for Color. Color excites and moves people.
