On November 6, 2010, The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences awards Zacuto Films wins Emmy for Winning Series (Midwest Chapter) “The Great Camera Shootout 2010” in the category for Outstanding Achievement for a Program Series. Additionally, FilmFellas Cast 7: “Masters of Non-Fiction, were among the 7 nominees.
A Word From Web Series Producer Steve Weiss
"Last year I petitioned The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences to create a category for web series. They still haven't done that but they did make a change this year in allowing web content to enter in any category but knowing it has to compete with television. FilmFellas and The Great Camera Shootout were the only web shows nominated for Emmy's. But that glass ceiling is broken. Any one of us, the international indie film movement, can enter their work in the Emmy's so long as your programming format fits the category and compete with television programming head on. We all know that our community is doing ground breaking incredible work. Let's go kick television's ass and take their awards away! The moment we start doing this, television itself is going to come calling on the indie film movement. We can do this. Thank you for all your support and now it's going to get really exciting." Thanks, Steve
