Movie Producer Todd Stanley Nominated for Emmy

Todd Stanley, a resident of Lotus, was recently honored with two Emmy nominations for his creation of Discovery Channel’s ‘Deadliest Catch,’ a series about the lives of Alaska’s crab fishermen on the dangerous Bering Sea. One nomination was for Todd’s camera work, ‘Outstanding Cinematography for a Nonfiction Series,’ and the second nomination was for ‘Producer of an Outstanding Nonfiction Series.

Todd Stanley and his Co-Producer/brother Doug Stanley, were interviewed recently by Capital Public Radio’s Insight program. When asked in the interview, “Any (other) particularly scary moments stand out for you?” Todd replied, “You know, I think every time you’re out on deck is a scary moment. I had a crab pot, one time, it broke free from the crane that was lifting it and it landed on the deck just a few feet away from me. These things weigh about a hundred pounds empty, this one was loaded with 3-4 thousand pounds of crab. Yah, ya know, everwhere you look, there’s danger waiting.”

You can learn more about the dangerous job of crab fishing by clicking on The Deadliest Catch. You’ll find more about Todd and the work he does at Boil Line Productions.

Todd Stanley will do a Featured Presentation at the Sierra Nevada House on Wednesday, September 19th at 7:30pm, with behind-the-scenes footage and a question and answer opportunity.

One thought on “Movie Producer Todd Stanley Nominated for Emmy

  1. Good morning everyone. I wanted to thank you Sarah for your posting. It’s been amazing all of this success of Deadliest Catch! Its all been a little over whelming for a shy, small town kid like me. A couple of things I wanted to point out about Sarah’s posting. Although I am one of the original producer’s of Deadliest Catch and an integral part of the Discovery team that produces Deadliest Catch, I am not the “creator” of the show. That credit goes to Tom Beers of Original Productions, and who is also the Executive Producer. My brother Doug is actually a producer the same as me in fact he is also the Director of Photography. These titles can often be confusing even to me and everyone involved. In any account I look forward to sharing the “Behind The Scenes of Deadliest Catch” with you all tonight for those that missed it when it aired on tv last month. Of course it will be commercial free!! Thanks for all the support!! see you tonight.

    Sincerely,
    Todd Stanley
