Erin Elders is a director, writer and editor who studied film / video at Columbia College in Chicago, where he helped found the band Maps & Atlases. The band released two EPs, two full length albums, and toured internationally.

Editing and directing music videos and web content for M&A brought Elders back to the world of filmmaking and he left the band in 2014 to pursue that passion full time.

He recently finished work editing his first feature documentary, Don’t Break Down, the story of the seminal emo-punk band, Jawbreaker.
