2011 Emmy Nomination

Although it’s somewhat of a cliché to say "it’s an honor to be nominated"…in our case, it’s really true. We are very honored to have received a 2011 Emmy nomination in the highly competitive community affairs segment category of the Heartland Chapter’s Emmy competition. Our moving documentary short was directed by Scott Takeda through his production company Takeda Entertainment. Takeda directed and wrote the documentary, and Brock Sherman was the art director. Our entry is competing with two other documentaries for the top honor. The winner will be announced at the 25th Anniversary Awards Gala in late July.

This is the sixth time in the past seven years Takeda has received an Emmy nomination, and his ninth total nomination to date. So far, he's been fortunate to have won it five of those times.
