Nick Nanton, Director of the documentary “Visoneer” on the life and work of Dr. Peter Diamandis and the Xprize® produced by Dicks + Nanton Productions has earned an Emmy® Award for Director-Post Production.
Orlando, FL – December 16, 2015 – Nick Nanton recently received an Emmy® Award for the documentary, “Visioneer.” The Emmy® Ceremony was held on December 5, 2015 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (Suncoast Region.)
“Visioneer” tells the story of Peter Diamandis’ vision to create the “X Prize,” a $10 million contest meant to encourage the creation of new space vehicles and a whole new space industry. Peter dreamed of outer space his whole life. But since the days of his childhood, when the Apollo program was at its height, America’s excitement for the exploration of space has waned, even if Peter’s obsession never did. He set out to find a way to kick-start the next evolution of spaceflight, inspiring people all over the world to look to the stars again. Through hard work, passion, and a never-say-die attitude, Peter and his colleagues managed to overcome hurdle after hurdle to create the Ansari X Prize and help usher in a new era of private space flight.
“Visioneer” was nominated in several categories including Director, Editor, Audio, Cinematography, and Photographer.
