FRANKLIN EVARTSHailing from the northeast and being a New York Yankee fan, Franklin met Bill McFetridge in 1978 while working at a television station in Fort Smith, Arkansas. They’ve worked together for nearly 38 years. Franklin is now operations/production manager for OF&VP. He’s also a music collector with thousands of CD's and vinyl albums dating from the 60's, 70's, and 80's. Franklin still gets together with the “Red Barn Ramblers,” a group of seasoned musicians. They only meet a couple of times a year, but it’s enough for him to blow off the cobwebs on his old harmonica.

She’s also Bill's better half and the mother of two boys, so, obviously, she’s heard it all.

She’s also a past President of the Arkansas State School Board Association and the State PTA. Caring about others and working hard to make a great education available for all kids in Arkansas will be her legacy to the people of Northwest Arkansas, Springdale and us at OF&VP.

BILL MCFETRIDGEAs president and founder of Ozark Film & Video, Bill McFetridge has over 35 years of experience shooting film and video, with credits that include filming exteriors for CBS’s “Evening Shade”, directing the television pilot “Life of Riley,” and directing a racing series for ESPN, as well as the currently running children’s show “What’s Up, Que Pasa?”
Bill is a Minnesota native who broke into television broadcasting as an on-air reporter in the 1970s. After doing news broadcasts, he worked his way into producing and directing. In 1983, he founded Ozark Film and Video, convinced there was a need for independent film and video production in the region. Turns out, he was right.
Bill was a rock drummer many moons ago. And, during the last several years, he may have even appeared on open mike night at a comedy club or two, but you didn’t read that here.
