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.”

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.
