Already read “Who is TVJerry?” Here’s the rest of the SIFTER gang.
Eric Futterman is a documentary film maker and owner of EAF Custom Communication in Richmond. Email Eric
A lifelong RVAer who’s had his hands in various aspects of the music scene…from building stages for the Beach Boys, running spotlight at bluegrass festivals to coordinating the music for charitable events…Bill has seen and heard a lot of good (and bad) music. Ten years ago he realized he can’t really dance, but also that nobody’s watching, so getting out on a regular basis to local shows is a must. For the last nine years he’s volunteered at the Richmond Folk Festival as an artist host and has gotten to know a wide spectrum of musicians during that time. Email Bill
He’s been writing about theater since 1999 for Backstage, 64, and Style Weekly magazine. He has been recognized twice by the Virginia Press Association with awards in critical writing; earned a fellowship at the USC Annenberg School of Journalism in 2011; and is a co-founder of the Richmond Theatre Critics Circle, which hosts an annual theater awards event. He agrees with you that Russell Crowe was awful in the screen adaptation of “Les Miserables.” Email David
Elizabeth figured she would fire herself—or at least create talking points for her boss to use. She was right. For a “corporate communicator,” it’s in the job description. Develop strategy, write speeches, produce videos, and help tell employees their jobs are gone because the company is closing. Otherwise, it was 17 years well spent with Richmond-based retailer Circuit City. She worked alongside the area’s most talented and creative people. And she wore every hat in her career closet, which features ad agencies, film and video production companies, and independent production. Today, Elizabeth works as a writer and communications consultant. Email Elizabeth
Harrison has worked extensively in the area: former arts & culture editor of “Style Weekly,” former associate editor of “64 Magazine,” current contributing editor for “Virginia Living.” He’s written for almost every magazine and newspaper in the state, as well as “Parade,” “Goldmine” & AOL-Digital Cities. He founded SaveRichmond.com and was researcher/writer for “Virginia Rocks! The History of Rockabilly in the Commonwealth.” He can be heard on “Radio Wowsville” (Cville’s WTJU) & “Open Source RVA” (Richmond’s WRIR). donlharrison.blogspot.com Email Don
