About Me:
Erich Martin Hicks
Co-Founder, Alpha Wolf Productions, Inc.

Erich Martin Hicks, co-founder of Alpha Wolf Productions Inc., is an acclaimed Special Effects Coordinator, Producer and Writer, with over 50 years of experience in the entertainment industry. The company, co-founded with wife, Portia Scott-Hicks, is an independent production outlet that develops, writes, and produces feature film and television content. Historically, he is the first African-American to receive a Special Effects Pyrotechnic Operators’ 1st class Masters License. Thus, he is expertly qualified to produce and direct action sequences, stunts and explosions.

An apprentice to the legendary Special Effects Coordinator Richard “Dick” Albain, whose credits include; (The Three Stooges; Assault on Precinct 13; Bewitched (TV series); and many more), Hicks’ work has included the small and large screens including, Scary Movie: 2; Diagnosis Murder; Married with Children; Captivity; and The Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show. Most recently, he completed work on the CBS summer series, Swingtown, and on the film Life is Hot in Cracktown (Kerry Washington, Vondi Curtis-Hall) – a gripping portrayal of crack cocaine’s assault on Urban America.

As a writer, his first novel, Rescue at Pine Ridge, was released in December 2008. The book is a historical narrative, depicting the all-Black 9th Calvary. Known as the US military’s famed “Buffalo Soldiers”, that helped settle the American West in the late 1800s. Hicks has completed an accompanying screenplay for a TV mini-series, Trilogy and epic, and has garnered support from acclaimed actor/director Bill Duke. Dedicated to exploring the history of African-Americans/Blacks and shattering stereotypes, his Alpha Wolf Productions, Inc. has also developed a feature film documentary, Soul on a Wave (narrated by actor/author Hill Harper and acclaimed actor Keith David), which exposes the life and times of surfers of color. Currently, Hicks has completed a motion picture epic screenplay STAGECOACH MARY, based on real life heroine Mary Fields. “Stagecoach Mary” was the first African-American/Black woman to deliver mail for Wells Fargo in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. This project has been developed and written for Queen Latifah.

Mr. Hicks obtains new ideas for his diverse projects from his many travels, acknowledging the direct correlation between nature and history. An avid outdoorsman, he has traveled near and far to climb the world’s most celebrated mountains, including Mt. Whitney (located in the Eastern Sierras of California) which is the highest mountain in the contiguous United States. Mr. Hicks also descends from a family heritage that includes his grandfather's distinction as a Buffalo Soldier who served under General Blackjack Pershing. Mr. Hicks' grandfather was one of the highest-ranking African-American Military Officers in WW-1. As Captain in the 317th Armored Train Division, Captain Lee J. Hicks was responsible for getting ammunition to the war front.

Mr. Hicks is available for lectures on the Motion Picture Industry, and on issues pertaining to African-American/Black culture, military, politics and history.
