“The Pathway Home” short film nominated for Mid-Atlantic Emmy
Short Order Production House has been nominated for its first Emmy for “The Pathway Home,” a 16-minute short documentary film produced by New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer and New Castle County Digital Media Manager Kyle Grantham, and directed by Christina Reilly of Short Order Production House.
“The Pathway Home” was nominated in the Societal Concerns long-form category.
The documentary was filmed over the course of The Hope Center’s first year, exploring the origins of The Hope Center project and the affordable housing crisis in Delaware. The documentary puts a human face to the hundreds of residents who have called The Hope Center home since it opened last year, and shows the impact the project has had on their lives.
At Short Order, Christina Reilly directed a team that included Jason Prezant (director of photography), Sam Molloy (editing), Josh Johnson (sound), and Alexander Newman and Hannah Gellar (second unit interviews).
“It’s an honor to be nominated, of course, but we’re delighted that this nomination will shine an even brighter spotlight on the team that opened ‘The Hope Center’ in the middle of the pandemic and continues to provide vital services to its residents,” Matt Sullivan, COO of Short Order Production House, said in a statement.
“The Hope Center is an ambitious and forward-thinking approach to tackling the homelessness crisis in America,” New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer said. “We produced this documentary with the hope it will inspire other governments across our country to replicate it and bring dignity to an underserved part of our communities.”
The 40th Annual Mid-Atlantic Emmy Awards will be presented Saturday, October 1, 2022, at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel.
