Win Who's Emma...? Ohhhh Emmy..!!!!!

Hi Guys,

I have important news:

Please can you join me in congratulating our own CaptanApollo (James Millett) he has been nominated for an Emmy as Art Director for outstanding work on the TV mini-series "The Pacific" produced by Spielberg and Hanks for Dreamworks.

He has been invited to attend the ceremonies in the USA on 21st August 2010:

After talking to him earlier today we understand he has ironed his shirt in anticipation of departure, his wife says this is a first for him.

It is exciting times at the Millett household and the nomination means Jim will be joining an elite group - we will be cheering him on during proceedings and hoping he gets to bring home some brass.

Everyone who has followed one of Jim's build threads always knew he had talent in abundance. Personally I am so pleased that his skill and dedication to the profession has been recognised.

Good on you mate

Cap'n

I am in awe. Congratulations and thanks for the heads up Capt'n

'Pacific' was without doubt the finest programme to make onto the alfalfa SKY box this year.

Great work mate.

Default More news....

How many realised that Jim was heavily involved with the movie STEALTH?

He worked on the full sized mock up aircraft aboard the Nimitz no less...

Not so glamourous in reality apparently, bunked under a noisy steam catapult that was in flying ops use from early till very late.

If, like me, you quite admired the Stealth aircraft design, Jim has some material he may be willing to share.... So that's 5 line views plus Isometrics thanks Jim.




Mamas Pitsilis has a particular fondness for unusual aircraft too

Congradulations on your nomination Jim - 'The Pacific' is one of the best film (well, mini series) I've seen in a long time. You have to win this Emmy - you deserve it

Thanks for sharing this information with us Cap'n

Smile Callie's photos....

Hi Callie,

Nice to chat to you both, we'll chat again soon I hope.

Some brilliant photos, the crew look very happy to meet the cast.

Just look at that full scale mock up, the first thing I thought about was Russian Satellite photos and some puzzled Kremlin Staff, I bet you scared the pants off them

I could stand to see a few more photos when you have the time to post them, work like this always deserves recognition and I'll bet judging by the comments posted here so far would be mighty popular too. No pressure though I know you are really busy and appreciate you taking the time to post and share these.
