Max Sainvil has been told since he was a young teen "You have a good eye" when he directed his first short as a junior in Linden High School. Since then, Max has been working on various types of projects ranging from music videos to feature films.
Max fell in love with film after winning the New Jersey Young Film & Videomakers Festival in 2000. After doing so, he attended college at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA to pursue his career in filmmaking. After winning the Best senior film (Annie E. Sinnott Film Award) at his University, Max decided to use his talent by directing a few shorts and music videos. In 2008, his most successful direction was a music video called "Be Alright'' which hit over two thousand views on YouTube alone.
Max has worked with legendary hip-hop entertainers such as DJ Premier, Blaq Poet, and Gillie Da Kid. He completed a reality show for Wu-Tang Clan member “Raekwon” in 2010 and then went on to shoot Naughty By Nature’s upcoming reality show. Max is one of five film directors to work under contract with Conquer Entertainment (powered by Market America) to direct music videos for their current artists. Early last year, he was approached by a producer to write a short screenplay dealing with a raising Nigerian model, which he successfully completed a few weeks later. He's currently working on a feature screenplay, which he plans to be in production mid 2010. “I was introduced to Max in early 2010 says Ernest Ruffin after a couple of conversations I knew he was the guy to lead ECSMG Media’s production team. His goal is to create winning projects with the highest of quality and we are excited that Max is the engine that drives the multi-media division”

He was highly recruited by many major colleges across the country. He selected Providence College in Rhode Island where he became an All Big East performer. Eric’s play led him to be drafted by Larry Bird and The Boston Celtics 14th in the 1995 NBA draft.
Eric spent the next twelve years as a professional basketball player in the NBA playing seven of those seasons with the Boston Celtics and other teams.
