Carolina Visual Productions is a 501 C 3 organization that was founded November 1987. The original name of the organization was the Wilson Visual Production Company which was based out of Wilson, NC. As the guard switched towns a few times, it was decided by year 3 to become Carolina Visual Productions. Co-founders John Dillon and Dwayne Barnes started the organization in order to give kids something to do after marching band season was over. Since winter guard was very new to NC, there weren’t many groups out there. Some local shows there may be 3-5 groups total. Today, the organization has an impressive 4 groups and are looking forward to even more growth as the organization crosses into a few different counties.
