JDM TV Advisor nominated for Emmy

JDM Professor Tim McCarty received an Emmy nomination from the Lower Great Lakes Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for his work on a 2010 documentary and musical concert show project shot in HD. The program featured the University of Akron’s Steel Drum Band and aired on PBS 45/49 in February 2011. 

The Hammer on Steel Trailer:

McCarty was nominated in the #60 Crafts: Director - Live or Live to Tape category and traveled to Indianapolis for the Emmy night gala held on the infield of the Indianapolis 500 racetrack in June. He did not win (he lost to an Ashland alum, Pat Murray '74, who directs the Cleveland Indians!) but as the saying goes, “He's proud to have been nominated!”
