      The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awards Zacuto the Emmy for it's web series. Last year I petitioned to the The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences to create a category for web series. With no sign in doing so, they did make a change this year in allowing web content to enter in any category, but to compete with television. FilmFellas and The Great Camera Shootout were the only web shows nominated for Emmy's this year, but that glass ceiling has now been broken. Any one of us in the international indie film movement, can enter their work in the Emmy's as long as the programming format fits the category and competes with television programming head on. We all know that our community is doing ground-breaking, incredible work. Let's go challenge television and get the awards due us!!! We want television to come calling on the indie film movement for programming. We CAN do this! Thank you for all your support, let's sit back and watch how exciting this is all bout to get. Steve

                  From the Emmy Award winning production house, Zacuto Films, the web series tackles a new breed of cameras in the most scientific camera comparison to date. The GCSO 2011 is a documentary about the Single Chip Camera Evaluation (SCCE) which encompasses large-scale, technical, camera evaluation tests administered by Robert Primes, ASC. The GCSO is not a contest to decide out who makes the "best" camera. Rather, it is a collection of tests aimed to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the industry’s newest cameras.
