Moline Filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle win Mid-America Emmy
Kelly and Tammy Rundle of Fourth Wall Films received a Mid-America Emmy® Saturday evening for their short documentary “Over & Under: Wildlife Crossings” in the Environmental/Science category. The Rundles’ films have been nominated nine times.
“Our sincere gratitude for this important win goes to all involved in this production,” producer Tammy Rundle said. “And, a big thank you to Lora Adams and WQPT-PBS for the qualifying broadcast and their ongoing interest in our films.”
“Our hope was that the film would bring more awareness to this important environmental subject and inspire action to save human and animal lives,” said director Kelly Rundle.
“Over & Under: Wildlife Crossings” examines wildlife crossings by exploring two successful yet different approaches to turtle crossings under state highways near Cedar Rapids, Iowa and Stevens Point,
Wisconsin. The film was partially funded by a grant from BeWildReWild/Big River Connectivity and Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation.
Previous Fourth Wall Films documentary film projects nominated for Mid-America Emmy awards include “Becoming Harriet Beecher Stowe,” “Good Earth: Awakening the Silent City”, “Letters Home to Hero Street” (co-produced with WQPT), “River to River: Iowa’s Forgotten Highway 6,” “Country School: One Room – One Nation,” and three 2020 nominations for the Rundles’ docudrama “Sons & Daughters of Thunder”—one of them for Bill Cambell’s original Music Score for the film.
