UL Grad Wins Emmy Award for Work on Popular Amazon Prime Series “Daisy Jones & The Six”
Lafayette, LA (KPEL News) - "Daisy Jones & The Six" rose quickly to the top of viewers watch lists when it debuted on Amazon Pride in March of 2023. Interestingly, the miniseries has a Louisiana tie that is one more feather in the cap of the University of Louisiana (UL).
The show stars Emmy-nominated Riley Keough, who happens to be Elvis' grand daughter, and follows the rise and fall of a 1970s rock band.
Producing a show that is largely focused on music calls for a talented, dedicated group of sound professionals. One of those people happens to be a graduate of the UL Arts Department.
He posted on social media that working on the Emmy-nominated "Daisy Jones & The Six" presented challenges, but he heralded the work of the production sound team in making the experience easier for the actors:
We found some creative ways to help immerse them in a space on set where their attention could be focused on telling their story by removing some of the distractions created during the typical filmmaking process.
Not only did the show and Riley Keough garner Emmy nominations, the sound team did as well, specifically for Episode 10:
Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Limited orAnthology Series or MovieFor "Track 10: Rock 'N' Roll Suicide"
Congratulations, Chris! We are all so proud of you. Geaux Cajuns!
