Video/TV Production for over 20 years!

“Divine Discontent: Charles Proteus Steinmetz” documentary EMMY nominated!

This is a documentary I produced with Bruce Carlin.  We tried for 7 years to get funding and finally managed to secure a grant to get it made.  Our good friends at wmht, the PBS affiliate in the Albany area was the presenting station for it to the PBS system.  It is now airing across the country!  We decided (and at the suggestion of Dan Swinton of wmht) to put it in for a NY regional EMMY award.  That’s a tough market as it includes all of NY City and NJ!  So we are up against MSG, Yankeeograpy docs etc… It was announced last week that it has been nominated in the BEST DOCUMENTARY category!  Winners will be announced on May 2nd.

 

Here is the promo for it:

 

And here is the open to the show and a round table discussion we shot at Mt. Lake PBS with Thom Hallock for Mountain Lake Journal.  The narrator is none other than Kate Mulgrew who is best known as Captain Janeway on STAR TREK VOYAGER and as Red in ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK.  She was a delight to work with and added so much to the finished production.

 

The entire documentary can be viewed here:

    I am an Alumnus of Steinmetz High School in Chicago. I was familiar with the namesake of our school, having read about him. I would like to get a DVD copy of the sensational PBS Documentary for the Library at the school. Also Twacher Study Guides do that his story can be taught at the school. Ironically, my Nephew, Michael Farina is an Electrical Engineer and Graduate of the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana.
