BOX LUNCH-5/1

“Get Real! – Producing Reality Television, with Michael Essany”

Michael Essany always wanted to have his own television show, but rather than dream about it, he made it happen. At the age of 13, he turned his family’s Valparaiso, Indiana home into a TV studio and created “The Michael Essany Show,” a reality / talk show featuring his life, his family, and a series of famous (and not-so-famous) guests. In 2001, the show was picked up by E! Entertainment. Since then, he has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Showand “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” and The Michael Essany Show found a national and international audience.

Join Michael Essany for a discussion of his television work and his new book, “Reality Check: The Business and Art of Producing Reality TV.”

When: Friday, May 1, noon – 1pm

Where: Columbia College Television Department

600 South Michigan Ave., Room 1501 (Studio A)

Free admission

EMMYS:

51st Chicago/Midwest Emmy Awards
CALL FOR ENTRIES - DEADLINE: JUNE 12, 2009 www.chicagoemmyonline.org<http://www.chicagoemmyonline.org/>

Produce NEWS or PROGRAMMING for your College or University?  We now have 5 new college student production categories!

Put your best work forward and ensure that your work is reviewed by some of the most successful and highly-esteemed TV professionals in the business.

They will not only LOOK at your work, but possibly honor it as, what you already know it to be, a piece of work that resides in a league of its own.

If you get nominated, you'll also get the exclusive info to purchase 'the golden ticket' to attend the actual Chicago/Midwest Emmy Awards Ceremony.  And if you win, we'll honor YOU there with your very own plaque, in front of all the big shots in the business.

For the first time in the Chapter's history, the Chicago/Midwest Chapter is introducing these new categories exclusively for College Student Productions.  Look for categories S-1 to S-5 in our CALL FOR ENTRIES PDF online.

"Yeah yeah' you're thinkin', 'but let's talk Deniros...how much will it COST me to submit my work?" You ready for this? The cost is 40 dollars if you're already a member of  the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS), and 50 dollars if you're not. So basically, a week's worth of lattes could earn you a lifetime's worth of bragging rights.

The deadline for entry forms, fees and DVDs is Friday, June 12th, 2009 and to make your life easier, we've made the entire entry process, including the paying part, available online.

Now, I've done my part, it's time you did yours. Head over to http://www.chicagoemmyonline.org/call-for-entries.php, read through the rest of the details, download the 'call for entries booklet' and check this bad-boy off your 'to do' list today!
