TNDV: Television Wins Five Midsouth Regional Emmy Awards
Continuing to garner accolades for its mobile production excellence, TNDV: Television has once again been honored with multiple Midsouth Regional Emmy Awards by the Nashville/Midsouth Chapter of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
12 projects produced using TNDV facilities were nominated in seven categories, including two of the three nominated pieces in each of the Audio and Lighting categories.
TNDV owner Nic Dugger was this year’s recipient of the Emmy for Director/Program for his work on Skyville Live. “We have a long history of earning Emmys for Technical Achievement and Special Event Live, but receiving the award for Directing was a very pleasant surprise,” says Dugger. “It’s a tremendous honor, as I was nominated alongside some very good friends who are outstanding directors.”
Additional wins this year included Interactivity, Technical Achievement, Entertainment and Audio. The 2017 Emmy event brings Dugger’s personal Emmy count to 12 wins and over 40 nominations thus far in his career.
Nashville-based TNDV specializes in remote facilities of all sizes, including their fleet of eight HD and 4K production trucks, and six fly-packs for multi-camera acquisition.
In addition to receiving multiple awards this year, TNDV was also the facilities provider for the regional telecast itself. Their flagship double-expanding side truck Exclamation served as the primary production truck for the nine-camera live event, while their Ku uplink truck Constellation provided HD uplink for the show. Dugger has been personally involved with the live telecast for 20 years, starting as an intern with the Chapter in 1996.
“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the industry we love than by producing the telecast that honors our peers,” says Dugger. “The NATAS organization exists to recognize the many outstanding disciplines in our industry, and of course we feel very strongly about each and every one of them. We’re proud to work on the telecasts and to have been selected as award recipients ourselves.”
