A new film debuts this Friday at the The Legacy Theatre in Springfield (101 E. Lawrence Ave.) As a unique spin, the movie will be screened at the same location it was filmed. For many in the local theater community, it is sure to bring some nostalgia, featuring the backstage area of what was once the site of the STC (Springfield Theatre Center.)

This week we hear from Emma Wilson. The Springfielder co-wrote/co-directed the new short film Sarah, along with Dave Heinzel - it stars actor Stella Cole. Wilson is also a poet (recently profiled by Scott for the Illinois Times, here) and event organizer, she also has a blog about "creative recovery" called Mental Thrillness. Tune in to hear what she's up to & a sample of her poetry!

Given the breadth of the output of work -- (21 episodes!) it seems impossible it's been just a year since The Studio Show premiered. The goal originally was to create a program for public access. Instead it's become a web-based showcase of Springfield talent including short films, musical performances, a mini-series and much more. The crew now has a new vision, as we hear on this episode.
