We're excited to announce that "One Moment, One Image: Connecticut History Through the Eyes of a Photojournalist" has been nominated for a New England Emmy award.
The show, which was nominated under historical/cultural program or special, shows us the true power photographs have on how we experience our world. In Connecticut, those images have come from the state's news source, The Hartford Courant, which celebrated its 250th anniversary last year.
Kinetic Media's Katie Warchut served as producer/scriptwriter and John O'Neill as director.
The awards ceremony will be held May 30 in Boston.
Thanks to everyone who was part of our team, especially Marisa Finn, who both helped track down the many, many photographs featured in the show, editor Cathy Jackman, and everyone at the Courant, Editor Andrew Julien, Digital News Content Manager Sandy Csizmar and the talented Hartford Courant photographers!
We're excited to be working with the educational community again, this time with a new video for Achieve Hartford! showcasing the concept of blended learning.
The video, which premiered at the GradNation Community Summit today in Hartford, shows how a hybrid of traditional face-to-face instruction combined with web-based online learning can help students learn at their own pace and personalize their learning experience.
A special thanks to the staff at Path Academy in Willimantic for helping us tell the story of blended learning at their school.
It's easy to take water for granted, but there's a lot of work that goes into keeping Connecticut's water healthy.
Learn how it's done in our upcoming Connecticut Public Television documentary, Water Works: Bringing Pure, Clean Water to Connecticut, part one airing May 19 at 8 p.m.
The show will take you to reservoirs and watersheds, into a brewery and a logging operation, into sand filter beds and underneath dams, unlocking the mysteries of how clean water comes out of your faucet.
To learn more and to see more of our drone footage over beautiful CT reservoirs go to ctwaterworks.org.

Our video for the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center in Mystic, CT -- starring a loveable oppossum named Mr. Wiggles -- debuted last weekend at the organization's annual gala to much acclaim. We had a lot of fun meeting the animals, walking their grounds and witnessing a release of an owl into the wild. We also got to capture some beautiful foliage shots with a drone.
The center helps an average of 125 wild birds and animals brought to them with injuries. They cover all veterinary costs, feeding, housing, rehabilitating, with the goal of re-release the animals to the wild. If you'd like to help, visit www.dpnc.org/volunteer

It was great to meet so many representatives from the nonprofit world at the CT Nonprofit Conference last week. Kinetic Media's executive producer/director John O'Neill heard a resounding message from many of the speakers throughout the day: nonprofit organizations need to tell the stories of the people they are helping.
It seems obvious that their work should speak for itself, but nonprofits need to get the word out and take advantage of the changing media landscape.
That's where video can help. Kinetic Media is reaching out to nonprofits because we want to tell great stories.
As keynote speaker and man behind idealist.org, Ami Dar, put it: compelling + concise + credible = contagious.
Let's talk about creating content that's contagious.
