Outside TV’s ‘Image Quest’ is Awarded Sports Emmy for Outstanding Camera Work
(Westport, CT.) Outside TV, the leading provider in action and adventure sports content, was most recently honored at the 38th Annual Sports Emmyâ Awards in New York City, with the Award for Outstanding Camera Work for Outside TV original mini-series Image Quest.
Image Quest dives into the world of adventure sports filmmaking; profiling the talented directors and photographers behind the most exciting and beautiful content in the genre. Image Quest features sports from skiing to surfing, mountaineering, yacht racing and beyond, and is available on Outside TV. The episode of Image Quest, which ultimately secured the Sports Emmyâ win, documents the making of the following three films: Lightwaves, Afterglow and Darklight, all Sweetgrass Productions original feature films.
To be recognized by The Academy as a leader in sports entertainment among talented peers – such as ESPN, HBO and NBC Sports – is an absolute honour for the independently-owned network. The win solidifies the high-quality work Outside TV aims to produce with every project. “I am very happy to see our talented production team be recognized with this award,” states Mark Burchill, CEO Outside TV. He continues, “It is a testament to the type of compelling and visually captivating work the team delivers day in and day out, and we are thrilled to see what the future holds for the network.”
