    • Science Matters: Show Open (Version 1; BECON TV)


      from Alejandro Franceschi Added

      This was a show open for a science series for middle school kids entitled: Science Matters. I had accepted an opportunity across the country, but I had already invested a year in the show open and the series' shows. I place this clip here as an interesting aside to the final version. The series was eventually nominated for an Emmy twice, in 2009 (a few months after my departure) & 2011. It was awarded a Bronze Telly Award in 2010. #ScienceMatters #Emmy #EmmyNomination #Telly #BronzeTelly #BECON #BECONTV
