Great news, the Chicago Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awarded Zacuto the Emmy for Outstanding Achievement for a Program Series. Let me make this clear, this is not a web award, this a an award where it was up against TV shows. This is a huge deal and shows that web content is being taken seriously.

This is such a well deserved win. I know how much work went into this as I was of course part of the behind the scenes and in front of the camera team

A great speech by Steve below.

    Whooohoo wow what an achievement.
    Congrats also to you Philip!

    I agree that this is final proof that webseries can be as good as television shows. More important a recognition that there is a major shift in media world. Things are changing and we are in the middle of it.

    And what a exciting and friendly revolution we’re in!

  12. Kudos to Zacuto for making these productions happen. They really do deserve an Emmy for these and really do demonstrate the quality of the work being produced for web-only distribution. This recognition goes a long way to validate the work of those that never makes it through broadcast gatekeepers, but yet has an audience desperate for the work that is produced.

    I’d say that the Great Shootout was on par with the work in NOVA produced by WGBH Boston, in the USA. Stellar from top to bottom.

  13. Grant Raphael says:

    Fantastically deserved.

    To go through all you guys went through to show in the most important detail the image quality against traditional film in a variety of lighting setups and pushing the iso’s to ridiculous ends of the scale was so important to show how good the Canon’s are.

    You couldn’t have done it in any better way and the results speak for themselves.

    A very well deserved and very prestigious accolade.

    Well done guys.
