Eric Jaffe was born in Miami Beach, FL, to a man and a woman. As a toddler, he didn't know what he wanted to be. "These were wasted years," he recalled in a since-deleted blog post. Fortunately, at the age of nine, Eric stumbled across some ambition and decided to go where no Jewish boy had gone before: into the film industry. After making some terrible films in high school, Eric talked his way into the prestigious Florida State University's Film School to make more terrible films and earn a degree. He graduated in early 2014. Since then, Eric moved out to Los Angeles and stumbled his way into creating digital content for NBCUniversal, FBE, New Form Entertainment and Omaze. His work has been viewed over 500 million times and reached the YouTube trending list on 16 separate occasions. He attributes his success to dumb luck and a way with word. "Record Safari" is his first feature-length documentary project.
