Congratulations to Northern Irish men, Ronan Hill and Mervyn Moore on winning a Creative Arts Emmy at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles last week. They were both part of the team that won the Outstanding Sound Mixing category for a TV drama series for Game of Thrones.
The Creative Arts ceremony is a forerunner to the Primetime Emmys, which will be broadcast on ABC on the 23rd of September. The fantasy series “Game of Thrones” now in its third year was the big winner at the creative arts Emmy Awards, taking home six awards
Speaking to BBC News Online from Los Angeles, Ronan Hill said he was delighted with the win.
“The Emmy Awards are huge. We were nominated for episode nine in series two, it was called ‘Blackwater’ and it had a lot of dialogue. When you are trying to record dialogue and there’s a battle going on, it can be a bit tricky”. And went on to say “It was fantastic night and it made it all the better that we won. I don’t event really remember what happened or who gave us the award, I was in such shock”.
Game of Thrones has been a huge economic boost to Northern Ireland and the development of its film industry, which now boasts a new custom build studio: The Paint Hall Studio.
