“SIGNS OF THE TIME” WINS 3 EMMYS!

BREAKING NEWS
“Signs of the Time” wins 3 New York Emmys!

Marc plays real life 1880’s baseball team owner C.C. Chase in a recreation segment of the film.

Signs of the Time wins 3 NY Emmy® Awards
We are very excited to announce that our film, Signs of the Time, won an Emmy® Award for Best Documentary at the 56th Annual New York Emmy® Awards Gala held April 14th in New York City. Congratulations to the entire staff of Crystal Pix and to everyone involved in this project. Congratulations also goes out to Rob LaVaque and Ray Manard for winning an Emmy® Award for Musical Composition/Arrangement and Editor:Program, respectively. Signs of the Time has been airing for the past year on public television stations all over the US. American Public Television is the distributor and WXXI in Rochester, NY is the presenting station.

The documentary reveals the myth and mystery behind one of the greatest innovations of baseball – umpire hand signals. The film was nominated in the following categories: Documentary, Director: Post-Production, Writer: Program, Photographer: Program, Editor: Program, and Musical Composition/Arrangement.

Produced and directed by Don Casper and narrated by Academy Award® winning actor Richard Dreyfuss, the film tells the story of two fascinating characters from baseball’s past – the 19th century deaf ballplayer William “Dummy” Hoy and the father of modern umpires, Bill Klem. Hoy and Klem are both attributed to devising umpire hand signals, but among baseball historians there is significant controversy over which of these men actually came up with them.

Produced in high-definition, Signs of the Time has enjoyed critical acclaim at film festivals across North America and has received “Best Documentary” awards five times. Signs of the Time is presented by WXXI Public Broadcasting in Rochester, New York, and distributed nationally by American Public Television.
