Wendol Jarvis

Hollywood knows that "Heaven" is Iowa, thanks to the worldwide marketing efforts of Wendol and the Iowa Film Office he pioneered for the state in 1984. Working with key production executives world-wide, Wendol has secured thousands of T.V. and films for Iowa, generating $110 million in expenditures by filmmakers in the past 13 years, increasing Iowa’s revenue by $6 million. Under Wendol’s leadership, the Iowa Film Office has aided production of Costner’s Field of Dreams; Country, with Jessica Lange; Lynch’s The Straight Story; Starman; Michael, with John Travolta; Miles from Home, with Richard Gere; The Bridges of Madison County, starring Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep; and Spielberg’s Twister.
