In a press statement released July 7, the California Arts Council has announced a grant award of $56,000 to Visual Communications as part of its Creative California Communities program. The grant will be utilized to expand FfF Interactive Little Tokyo!, a multi-format transmedia project that was a highlight of the 2016 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. Visual Communications was one of only forty-one grantees statewide for this program.

In April 2017, FFF Interactive II features Bronzeville, Little Tokyo, the little known history from 1941-1943, when Little Tokyo was known as Bronvzeville. Utilizing 360 Virtual Reality and Projection Mapping, "Bronzeville, Little Tokyo" will highlight the rich history of jazz music, Breakfast Clubs and places that changed temporarily for 3 short years during the internment of the Japanese community.
