SAN MARCOS (May 17) — Palomar College has received two Pacific Southwest Emmy nominations for the documentary Nature’s Cathedral: The Geology of Yosemite, produced by the College’s Educational Television Department (PCTV).  The 2012 Emmy nominations were announced recently at Anthology in San Diego.  PCTV Producer Bill Wisneski was nominated for photography, along with Production Coordinator Mona Witherington. Editor Jonathan Keena was nominated for Animation/Graphic Design.

The documentary was created in collaboration with Palomar College Earth Sciences Professor Patty Deen for her Geology of National Parks course.

“Bill’s vision for this documentary was truly extraordinary” commented Deen. “He and the rest of the team were able to weave together the scientific aspects of the geology with the remarkable beauty that is Yosemite.  I have received great feedback about it from students and colleagues.  It’s a valuable tool for education in the classroom.”

 “This tremendous honor is a result of all the talented staff, students, and faculty who worked tirelessly on this project,” said Wisneski.  “We are thrilled about the accolades the documentary has received and the impact it has had on students here at Palomar”.
