Here’s more information from our press release:
San Francisco Bay Area video production company, Bayside Entertainment, received three Emmy nominations when the 43rd Annual Northern California Area EMMY Awards nominations were announced Wednesday, May 7. The nominations were received for their original public television program, Journeys for Good: Cambodia.
The half-hour program follows Emmy-winning production team Steve and Joanie Wynn as they travel with their 9 year old son to Cambodia to participate in a series of volunteer projects with non-profit partner Globe Aware. Working alongside other volunteers, they build wheelchairs for landmine victims and complete several construction projects for disabled families in and around Siem Reap.
The Wynns started Journeys for Good in 2009 after they traveled to Africa to produce a documentary on a volunteer project in Tanzania with Roadmonkey Adventure Philanthropy. Their program, “A Journey for Good: Tanzania” aired on public television stations nationally and received four Emmy nominations and two Telly Awards.
Journeys for Good is currently in development as a series for public television.
