An Award-Winning Start to Father’s Day

 

Ronn Kilby creative

 

Last night the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences held the 38th annual Pacific Southwest Emmy Awards at La Costa Resort and Spa.  My very talented husband, was not only asked to be a presenter with film star Bai Ling, but was nominated for an award.

 

The Pacific Southwest Emmys honor achievement in all southwest television markets, except Los Angeles, including San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, OrangeCounty, San Diego, Las Vegas, and Arizona.  It is always held in San Diego and provides a great opportunity to dress-up in our formal attire, see old friends, and do some all important networking. The event was hosted by Mark Christopher Lawrence, a great character actor who most recognize as Mike, the Buy More manager on the TV show Chuck.  He was very funny and just a really nice guy, and definitely kept the show moving along.

 

My husband Ronn Kilby is, as I noted above, very talented.  He heads up Ronn Kilby Creative, a small video production company that produces TV commercials, training videos, documentaries and short films.  What is so amazing about Ronn however, is that he has mastered every aspect of the business; he writes, shoots, produces, does audio, is an amazing editor, can compose, play and record the music, do the sound design, and to top it all off, design the artwork for DVDs and film posters.  Whew!

 

Ronn was nominated for a very clever TV commercial he produced for a local credit union, and even though he has won15 or 16 Emmys in the past, it is always nice to be nominated, and even better to win!  So, it was a great moment to hear his name called and watch him happily accept his award on stage.  I'm so proud of him!  And he did a great job of ad lib with Bai Ling (who is sweet, but a bit of a space case). So despite some less than stellar food, and outrageously expensive wine, (would you believe $13 a glass?) we had a great evening and a wonderful start to Father’s Day.

 

If you asked him though, he’s already won the most important award of all:  Being “Dad” to our combined three children, and now “Pop” to our four grandchildren.  And I know that to him, it really doesn’t get any better than that.

 

Happy Father’s Day!

So does your talented husband ever shoot videos for your line of work, Marti? I also had never heard of Bai Ling so I clicked on that link and got all caught up in her website. LOL. She's got the right idea . . . photos.

Hi Elizabeth,  yes he does.  We did a whole series on short sales that are on my youtube channel and have been on AR as well http://www.youtube.com/user/martikilby?feature=results_main.  We shot with a green screen and then he put me in a beautiful virtual office.  I've had people watch the video and then want to come and meet me in my beautiful office!  Ha!  We're going to do some more this summer.  Bai Ling believes she is from the moon...seriously!  Interesting girl!
