Norman Studios Vice President Barbara Wingo recently appeared on Gainesville’s Ilene Silverman Show, a half-hour public affairs program that has been on the air for over a decade. The show highlights the culture people that make North Central Florida such a special place to live and visit.
In the show, available on YouTube and select Florida public television channels, Wingo discusses Florida’s silent film history and its origins – a rogue film production company that jettisoned New York for a milder climate that would allow for year-round, on-location filmmaking.
Also appearing is Stephanie Bailes, Executive Director of Gainesville’s Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention. The Norman Studios will be the feature of an exhibit at the Cade Museum, set to open mid-June and featuring a screening of Norman’s only known surviving feature film, The Flying Ace.
