Business Development and Relationship Management
A native of Long Island who studied Fine Arts at New York University, Mr. Southern is a third-generation scenic artist. His grandfather painted the yellow brick road in Hollywood’s” The Wizard of Oz” and his father—the first scenic artist ever hired for television—ran the NBC Scenic Shop in its early days.
There is no need for Southern, however, to lean on his ancestors for his claim to fame. He has been involved in managing the scenic departments of 15+ major motion pictures including “The Exorcist”, “The Great Gatsby”, “The Wiz”, “The Purple Rose of Cairo”, and “All That Jazz”.
