The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


MAKE hits the Red Carpet?

MAKE hits the Red Carpet?

“Emmy-nominated Make: television.” Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Hard to image? Well, it’s true! We found out this weekend that Make: television was nominated in the “Outstanding Lifestyle Program” category for a Daytime Emmy! The show is up against Martha Stewart and This Old House. Martha? Kevin O’Connor? Move over! There’s a new face of daytime DIY. It’s John Edgar Park — and he’s brandishing a burrito blaster!

Congratulations to the amazing Richard Hudson (Executive Producer), Bill Gurstelle, John Park, Nick Watts, and the entire tpt National Productions crew, Keith Hammond, who coordinated things on our end, all the makers featured, and everybody else involved in bringing this wonderful show to television.

Emmy Award Nominations

Don’t Forget: You can see all of the episodes of the first season on Make: television right here!

    I really enjoyed Season One. An Emmy would be well deserved.

    The local PBS station (Oregon Public Broadcasting) supplied it in HD, which was a real treat.

    Any prospect of a second season?

    1. John Park says:

      Thanks so much Stefan, this is incredibly exciting for us all. An Emmy nomination certainly helps our prospects of getting sponsorship for another season…

  2. Alan Parekh says:

    Congrats on the nomination!

    Congrats guys. Be sure to tuck your warranty voider in your tux pocket. You never know what might need fixing.

    (I heard that Adam Savage brought a flashlight in his tux for the Emmys – apparently, he goes NOWHERE without one)

    1. John Park says:

      Thanks Matthew (and Alan, too). I’ll have a Leatherman P4 Squirt in my tux pocket. Because when you need pliers, you need pliers.

    It is a law of the universe that you will receive only when you are open to receive. When you open up your mind, it is amazing to note the way you get a flow of new ideas. You may be already having some successful marketing campaigns, but if you are looking for fresh ideas you have to be prepared to learn from others.
