NewsMarlboro College Film Professor’s TV Show Wins Two Emmy Awards
The show won Emmys for outstanding achievement in an entertainment program and for outstanding achievement in music composition. Producer Lauren Moye accepted the awards during the New England presentations in Boston on behalf of fellow producers Jay Craven, Hathalee Higgs, Dan Harvey and score composers Brett Hughs and Gordon Stone. The show was also nominated for program writing and for postproduction directing.
“Windy Acre,” starring Rusty Dewees was filmed in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom last summer and aired on Vermont Public Television. Ten Marlboro students and recent graduates worked as the film crew and production team for the series.
Craven, co-founder of Kingdom County Productions in Barnet, Vermont, has directed three films: Where the Rivers Flow North, A Stranger in the Kingdom and The Year That Trembled. He is currently doing post-production on new film Disappearances, starring Kris Kristofferson, scheduled for a 2006 release. This is his first television series. He has left the possibility open for a second season of "Windy Acres."
