The High Definition documentary "Transformed by Flame - The Glass Art of Frabel", first aired by PBA in Georgia in March of 2007 was nominated for 2 Emmy's in the categories of Cinematography and Editing.
The Producer of this documentary Thomas Kaye said: "It is an honor being nominated for 2 Southeastern Emmy's. The team worked very hard for this success and we travelled over a month through Europe and to several locations in the US to get all the footage and interviews needed for this documentary. We had well over 100 hours of great footage, which is also the reason why not even one single scene in the entire documentary had to be repeated, a trick oftentimes used to "fill" spots where the editor does not have enough footage. The camera crew and editors should be very proud of themselves and they certainly deserve this recognition."
The Producer of "Transformed by Flame - The Glass Art of Frabel" Thomas Kaye said: "It is always wonderful for a filmmaker to hear that a large number of people have had the opportunity to see your work. I understand that over 100 million fellow Americans had the chance to see our work, which is an incredible honor. Rest assured that we are working hard on several new projects to try to top the success of this documentary."
