Palomar College Receives Emmy Nominations for Television Productions

SAN MARCOS (May 6, 2010) – Palomar College has received three Pacific Southwest Emmy nominations for the documentary Circle of Life: The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, produced by the College’s Educational Television Department (PCTV).  The 2010 Emmy nominations were announced recently at the House of Blues in San Diego.  PCTV Producer Bill Wisneski was nominated for photography and producing the documentary and former Palomar student Paul Baker was nominated for editing the project.

The documentary was created in collaboration with Palomar College Life Sciences professor Dan Sourbeer as part of a 32-module online instructional video series.

“It was a tremendous privilege to work with such a talented group on this project,” Sourbeer commented.   “Feedback has been very enthusiastic from both students and the community-at-large.  I am extremely pleased with the result, and hope everyone involved is as proud as I am.  It will not only educate, but also promote the desire to protect this remarkable place.”

“The recognition the documentary is receiving is a direct result of the hard work by the staff and students who contributed to it,” Wisneski said.  “The ten Emmy nominations our department has received in the last seven years are a reflection of the quality of the educational programming produced for Palomar students.”

Circle of Life: The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem will air county-wide on the PCTV Cox/Time Warner channel 16 at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 9, 16, and 23.

The 36th Annual Emmy awards will be presented at the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown San Diego on Saturday, June 26.
