| Indiana native, Aaron Weiler, began his life long passion for production at age 6 while performing voice-overs for local radio station WCNB. This early interest in entertainment, and a brief meeting with another Indiana native, Director Robert Wise, inspired Aaron to attend Indiana University to pursue a B.A. in television and film production.
While attending IU, Aaron worked at local PBS station WTIU/WFIU as Associate Producer and Editor of on-air promotions, and later worked at Paramount Pictures Television in Los Angeles as a drama and comedy development assistant. In 1988, Aaron moved to Atlanta to work for COMPRO Productions and 62nd Street Commercials as an Editor, Director, and Associate Producer on numerous award-winning non-broadcast productions, documentaries, commercials, music videos and television programs.
Aaron formed his own production company in 2003 to pursue work on several independent television, film, and digital media projects. In 2006, he was hired by Cartoon Network Latin America as a Writer/PrEditor for Cartoon Network and Boomerang sponsorships & promotions. In 2008, he worked with Creative Director, Damon Pittman, to launch a new brand and channel for animation lovers called Tooncast. In 2012, Aaron was promoted to Supervising Producer, followed by a promotion to Senior Production Manager in 2014. Then, in 2017, he was promoted to Director of Production & Operations for Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Tooncast Latin America.
Along the way, Aaron served two years as Associate Artistic Director for Atlanta's Stage Door Players, and he volunteered his time as the Communications & Information Technology Committee Chair for the Georgia Production Partnership (GPP), a not-for-profit coalition of companies and individuals who are active in Georgia's film, video, music, and interactive game industries. GPP's mission is to help promote and support the growth of the entertainment industries in Georgia.
Aaron is also a supporting member of Atlanta Cutters and the Atlanta Film Festival.
