Jacksonville University Professor Creates Sound Of Silent Film

Peter Haden

Norman Studios' monthly silent film screening, “Silent Sunday,” celebrates Northeast Florida’s early film industry.

The events include live musical accompaniment by Jacksonville University music professor Tony Steve and his group, the Silver Synchro Sounds.

?We stopped by Steve's classroom for a lesson in the sound of silent movies.

This month's Silent Sunday is at 3 p.m. at Hotel Indigo in Southside's Tapestry Park. The comedic films being screened include "A Bath Tub Elopement" and "A Busy Night." Both were produced by Eagle Films, the predecessor to Jacksonville's Norman Studios. Visit  Norman Studios for ticket info.
