Master’s students’ film wins Northwest Regional Emmy

“Canopy Connections,” a documentary created by ENVS Master’s students Megan Toth and Kelly Sky, won a Northwest Regional Emmy award, in the category of Best Editing-Photography.

In the film, Megan and Kelly detail the experiences of the Canopy Connections Environmental Leadership Program team, which asked select ENVS undergraduate students to teach middle-schoolers about forest biology. The middle-school students were given an opportunity to climb into the canopy and explore the understory to learn about useful plants, and the cameras follow the students as they climb, with beautiful cutaways to their reactions to the new perspective on ecology. The ELP students worked in partnership with the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest and the Pacific Tree Climbing Institute.

The film was nominated in two categories, Best Film – Long-form Nonfiction and Best Editing-Photography. Learn about the nominees, winners and competition here; view the documentary here.
