EAF Communication & Eric Futterman

I simply love what I do.
One day I’m interviewing an NBA Hall of Famer, the next on a farm, the next watching surgery take place. The opportunities to see our community as it builds its rising reputation as one of the best cities in the country to live is the greatest gift of owning EAF Custom Communication. I have always said the key to any message; from a 10 second commercial to a feature length documentary, is to tell a story. Our team of independent artisans working with EAF seeks to tell the stories of our clients with a pallet of visual and still images, graphic elements, music, sound and the written word.
Eric for WHRO
I started doing all this story- telling to the world in general in 1981 when I signed on for my first radio newscast on Richmond Public Radio as an anchor for VCU Radio News. Since then I’ve traveled the world, interviewing literally thousands of extraordinary people and putting their messages into the right context.
Branding.  Marketing & Advertising. Documentaries, Business Communication. Education & Training.
I look forward to telling your story next.
