Florida in film
Move over Hollywood California, the historical roots of filmmaking in America run deep in the Sunshine State. At the end of the 19th Century when the film industry was looking to expand from New York and Chicago, production companies headed south to Florida. We discuss this history which includes the creation of gory slasher flicks with Caroline Breder-Watts whose work spans radio, theater and film. Then we talk with Academy Award winning filmmaker Andrew Hevia whose humble beginnings in the biz started in the Magic City that is Miami.
