Two NCTV producers pick up finalist awards for video excellence

Cheryl Noble of Noble 1 Productions and Gil Dominguez of TouchDown Productions received Western Access Video Excellence finalist awards for Best Documentary/Events and Best Live Production respectively. The awards are handed out by the Alliance for Community Media/Western Region, which is comprised of six states.

TouchDown Productions was recognized for its live broadcast of the Grass Valley Chamber of Commerce’s grand opening ceremony in late July. The hour-long event was televised from the chamber’s new office and visitors center.

Noble 1 Productions produced a short documentary of Ananda Village’s annual tulip festival that showcases thousands of tulips against the picturesque spiritual community.

The piece featured an interview with one of the original landscape designers nearly 30 years ago.

“It’s always exciting to have your hard work recognized and appreciated,” Noble stated. “These are just two of the many outstanding programs that NCTV producers create. NCTV provides everyone the opportunity to submit their own individual pieces on any subject. Our public access station is a true reflection of the heart and soul of our community and all the wonderful resources and events we have going on.”

WAVE award winners will be announced at the annual Alliance for Community Media conference Oct. 26 in San Jose. The western region of the Alliance for Community Media consists of six states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, New Mexico and Nevada. Its mission is “promoting civic engagement through community media,” according to ACM’s website.

TouchDown Productions’ next live broadcast will be of NCTV’s second annual “Power Up NCTV: The Next Generation” telethon to be from 1 to 5 p.m. Oct. 19. The fundraiser will be in the parking lot next to Grass Valley City Hall. NCTV, Nevada County’s local access television, is available on Comcast 11 and Suddenlink 16. The local government channel can be seen on Comcast 17 and Suddenlink 17. Programs can also be watched on the Internet at http://
