Chris Pinder, director of photography/director at Bluehole Pictures, has added Emmy Award winner to his resume.

Pinder was part of the Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB) team that walked away with two wins at the Southeast Emmy Awards at the weekend. The team of Lauren Anderson, Nicholas Stephens, Victoria Bostic and Pinder earned the Emmy for Best Single Spot Promotion Program for their work on the Stop the Drop Contest, a public service initiative aimed at reducing the rate of high school dropouts.

Moments later, they claimed the Emmy for Best Promotion Program Campaign for Road to the Dome, a series showcasing Georgia’s high school football season.

“The creative team at GPB were great to work with through this process and I am truly honored and grateful to be recognized for my work,” Pinder said.

Pinder has completed scores of projects in the United States and The Bahamas with his Bluehole Pictures. The list includes public service announcements and television commercials for clients such as The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, J.S. Johnson Insurance, Wendy’s, Dominos Pizza, E! News, ABC, CBS and numerous others.

The Bahamas Film Commission is proud to be a supporter of talented Bahamian filmmakers such as Pinder, said Bahamas Film Commissioner Craig Woods.

“Chris is a shining example of what we hope to achieve by supporting our filmmakers in whatever way we can,” said Woods. “The focus must be on achieving international standards. We cannot confine ourselves to one standard for within our borders and recognize another standard abroad. We must always think globally and ensure the work of Bahamians can match up against the work of any nationality, and Chris Pinder and his wife/Producer April, are doing just that through Bluehole Pictures.”

Mr. Woods said he looks forward to continuing to follow and support Pinder’s work.
