We can’t think of a better opportunity to be surrounded by legends of broadcast than at The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences San Francisco/California Chapters’ Gold & Silver Circle “Class of 2011” Induction Luncheon. This Saturday George stood amongst his idols, mentors and peers to help honor this year’s inductees for their contributions to Northern California television. George had the honor of being a presenter and inducting the wonderful Suzanne Saunders Shaw. We were also excited to see the Steve Davis Under- Graduate Overall Excellence Scholarship awarded to Mario Ayala from the College of San Mateo and the Jerry Jensen Graduate Overall Excellence Scholarship awarded to Paul Meyers from Stanford University. We are proud to contribute to the future of media creators and look forward to working with the next generation of broadcast journalists in the years to come.

We are so pleased and honored to have taken home two Emmy® awards this year– Chris Roy for Editing “Jay Maisel”, and George Lang for Directing “Jay Maisel”.
This piece is a great example of an American corporation aligning itself with a recognized award-winning artist to tell his story. Rather than use the time for a major commercial push, they chose to tell the story of the artist, and thus conveyed that this alignment message was about quality in the person and the company recognizing that person. This ended up being the most powerful message that there can be.
Below are some images of George and Chris accepting their awards. Congratulations guys!
The Big Picture Film & Video Arts is honored to have created two $3,000 video production scholarships through the San Francisco chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences to be awarded to one outstanding undergraduate student and one outstanding graduate student.
These scholarships have been created in the names of Jerry Jensen and Steve Davies. Two colleagues of George Lang, with whom he worked at KGO-TV with for many years.
George says, “Jerry was a mentor to me from the time I was 20 years old and helped me with my career throughout his life. Steve Davis and I worked closely together through the tumultuous 80s and all the major news stories that Steve was assigned to. There was no better journalist and one of few who fought for principles.”
Congratulations to George Lang and Chris Roy of The Big Picture! The Northern California Area EMMY® Award Nominations were announced today and they were each nominated for their work on The Jay Maisel piece.
Here is the full list of nominees:
The Big Picture Film & Video Arts, Inc. would like to congratulate the finalists and award recipients of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2010 Northern California. The event which we produced at the San Jose Fairmont on Saturday, June 12th was a great success.
We are honored to sponsor this program each year and to have the opportunity to tell the stories of all of the entrepreneur finalists and portray their vision for the event.
2009 was another great year at The Big Picture. We had the opportunity to work on a lot of great projects this year with some of our long time clients and some wonderful new ones. Though we can’t show you everything, here is a short compilation of the projects we worked on last year.
Remember to keep coming back to see some of the new projects we are working on in 2010.
We started out just doing a favor for our friend, Fred Grange, and we ended up winning the 2008 Telly Award for “Prostate Blues” produced by in-house producer Claudia Lang.
Produced for the Marin General Prostate Cancer Support Group, the purpose of the video is to raise awareness of both the importance of regular and early screening for men of a certain ago, and also the importance of support groups for those with prostate cancer. We tried to get these messages across while still highlighting the human element which is what it is all about at the end of the day.
