Signiant, a leader in intelligent file movement software for the media and entertainment industry, is pleased to announce that the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, Boston/New England Chapter, has honored employee Todd Kelly with two Emmy® Awards for his independent work on the series Jonathan Bird's Blue World.
Nominated in four categories, Kelly received Awards for Outstanding Children/Youth Program and Outstanding Magazine Feature/Segment.
The 2012 Emmy Awards were announced and presented at ceremonies held June 2, at the Copley Marriott Hotel in Boston, MA. This is the third consecutive year that Jonathan Bird's Blue World has been awarded Emmys.
Jonathan Bird's Blue World takes viewers on an adventurous exploration of the world's oceans in a series the whole family will enjoy. Filmed across the globe, each episode brings viewers to the edge of their seats. In Season Three, viewers followed the touch-and-go rescue of Sully, a pilot whale found stranded on a beach in Curacao and nursed back to health. Season Three also featured segments on magical blue holes in the Bahamas, the amazing Goliath Grouper, a sinkhole in the Yucatan, and Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
"It is a great honor to receive these awards," said Todd Kelly, Solution Architect for Signiant and member of the Blue World TV production team. "It is a proud achievement, and a testament to all of the incredible, hard work of the talented team at Blue World. It also validates how powerful these ocean adventures can be in connecting children with nature, allowing them to explore and gain understanding of the world in ways that might not otherwise be possible."
Jonathan Bird's Blue World has aired continuously on public television stations in the United States since May 2008. The show can be seen in Boston on WGBH, and on the Web at Co-produced by Jonathan Bird Productions and the Oceanic Research Group, the series is broadcast in 33 states to more than 160 million viewers. Season Four of the series is scheduled for release in mid-2013.
Host and moderator, Jonathan Bird, is an underwater cinematographer, underwater photographer, producer, author of seven books and public speaker. He has produced films for National Geographic, PBS, ABC, USA Network and even the SciFi Channel. With more than a decade of production experience, Kelly joined the staff of Blue World TV in October 2010. As part of the Blue World team, he is responsible for underwater cinematography.
Now living in New York, Kelly became a solution architect for Signiant in late 2011, where he assists leading media companies in designing effective broadcast and film production file-based delivery strategies. He has more than 15 years of software engineering experience at leading media technology firms such as Avid Technology, AnyStream and Integrated Computing Engines (ICE), and holds a degree in intellectual property law.
"Todd's extensive experience with media production helps to ensure the success of Signiant customers as they manage the movement of digital media through their post-production workflows," said Brian Bailey, Vice President of Professional Services at Signiant. "We're exceptionally proud of Todd's achievement at Blue World, and support his passion for creating shows that have enormous educational value."
