WFYI Public Television has received 19 Emmy award nominations in recognition of its outstanding local documentary and public affairs program productions this past year. The honors were announced by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) Lower Great Lakes Chapter on April 25.
As part of its on-going efforts to “Amplify the Voices of the Central Indiana Community” through its diverse educational programs and services, WFYI Public Television has been recognized with a “Station of Excellence” Emmy nomination.
Young Stars of Ballet, a performance documentary co-produced by WFYI Public Television and the Indianapolis City Ballet, was nominated for an Emmy in the category of “Best Arts/Entertainment Program.” The film offers a glimpse into the world of ballet through the eyes of its future stars. It features some of the world's premiere pre-professionals — not in competition, but in a memorable performance with the Indianapolis City Ballet.
Forests at Work — a special edition of WFYI Public Television’s acclaimed science series, Indiana Expeditions with Rick Crosslin — earned an Emmy nomination for “Best Youth Program/Special. Produced in partnership with the Indiana Department Indiana of Natural Resources’ Division of Forestry, the program examines how forests are managed in Indiana.
Wings Over Indiana: An Indiana Expeditions Special with Rick Crosslin, received nominations in four different categories: “Best Medical/Science Program,” “Best Program Editor,” “Best Photography/Non-News” and “Best Technical Achievement.” The program, which was produced in partnership with The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and the Academy of Model Aeronautics, travels across the state, as well as to the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center in California, to explore Indiana's connections to the history and science of aviation. Through stunning videography and the use of miniature cameras, WFYI places viewers in the cockpits of airplanes, on the wingtips of gliders and aboard model aircraft to experience the thrill of flight. The film was made possible by a NASA grant.
C.S.I. Shakespeare, a film that highlights the efforts of a world-renowned Shakespeare scholar to recreate a lost 400-year-old play for a landmark premiere at IUPUI’s Campus Theater, garnered recognition in three categories. The nominations include: “Best Historical/Cultural Program,” “Best Program Editor,” and “Best Program Writer.”
WFYI also received an Emmy nomination in the “Best Historical/Cultural Program” category for its documentary entitled, Invisible Women. The film, which spotlights Florence, Italy’s ground-breaking women artists and their thousands of little-known works, is based on the book, Invisible Women by Dr. Jane Fortune.
Digital Man/Digital World, a documentary produced by Covenant Productions in partnership with WFYI Public Media, was nominated for “Best Documentary.” The program chronicles the amazing career of Ken Olsen, who founded the Digital Equipment Corporation in 1957 — an era when computers were inaccessible to most businesses and to nearly all individuals. His pioneering efforts not only made computers smaller, less expensive, and more accessible, but also helped to revolutionize the computer and business industry.
WFYI also received two nominations in the “Best Documentary” category for its local program productions, Outside the Box and Naptown to Super City. Outside the Box examines how charter schools operate and how they are helping to raise the bar on what’s possible in education. Naptown to Super City, a collaboration between WFYI Public Television, Ted Green Productions and The Indianapolis Star, places viewers in the front row of history as it happened, showing how leaders gambled on an unprecedented strategy — civic development through sports — and succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. The acclaimed film also earned Emmy nominations in the categories of “Best Research” and “Best Writer.”
Inside Indiana Business with Gerry Dick - Super Bowl Special received a nomination in the category of “Best Interview/Discussion Program.” The weekly business series, which airs on 15 television stations throughout Indiana, is produced by Grow Indiana Media Ventures in partnership with WFYI Productions.
Naptown Radio Wars, a documentary that chronicles the history of Indianapolis rock radio in the `60s and `70s, was nominated for “Best Nostalgia Program.” The acclaimed film was produced by Videopolis, and marked its broadcast premiere on WFYI Public Television in spring 2012.
WFYI Productions also captured an Emmy nomination in the category of “Best On-Location Lighting” with a composite entry from Andrew Warren

Students from the Ohio Center of Broadcasting, Cuyahoga Community College and professionals from the Cleveland area received key and informative training from two of the area’s finest videographers and storytellers. Ron Mounts and Ali Ghanbari, both award winning videographer/journalists from WJW-TV in Cleveland presented techniques on two-point lighting, setup and gel mounting, and shot composition at Tri-C's 3,000 square foot Black-Box Film and Television Studio, located at the Metropolitan Campus in downtown Cleveland. Ghanbari presented an in-depth presentation on storytelling techniques, using many of his own nationally and locally- aired stories, followed by a question and answer session.
“The lessons learned from these professionals goes beyond the basics”, says Joe Koskovics, Chapter Activities Chair and National Trustee. “There’s no such thing as ‘too much information’ where these gentlemen are concerned.
