Personal Branding Expert Nick Nanton, Emmy award-winning producer and director, recently earned another Emmy® nomination for his work on the short film “Car Men.”
Orlando, FL – November 23, 2012 – Emmy® Award Winning Director and Producer, Nick Nanton, Esq., was recently honored to receive another Emmy® Award nomination for his work with the short film documentary, “Car Men” from CelebrityFilms® featuring Tracy Myers, Owner of Frank Myers Auto Maxx, a nationally recognized car dealership.
About the Film:
He’s gone on TV dressed up as a giant pickle. Nowadays, you’ll see him most often sporting a giant red, white and blue Uncle Sam hat. Tracy Myers may play outrageous to sell cars – but this best-selling author, nationally-recognized entrepreneur, and devoted family man is dead serious when it comes to building a business he, his family and his city can be proud of.
“Car Men” details the touching and occasionally hilarious story of how the Myers men created a car business that’s known all across America for its successful out-of-the-box thinking – not to mention its off-kilter TV commercials, featuring such quirky characters as Uncle Frank and Chainsaw Charlie.
As one auto pro says, “In the car business, Tracy Myers is who everybody wants to be.”
“Car Men” is the winner of 5 Telly Awards and has been featured on the Biography Channel.
Nick Nanton has earned the Emmy® Nomination for his work as Director and Producer of the film. Other memebers of the CelebrityFilms® team to earn nominations include JW Dicks (Producer), Amardeep Kaleka (Director of Photography), Craig and Hanny Boyer (Editing) and Robert Davidowitz (2nd Camera and Sound). “Car Men” was filmed in North Carlina. The Emmy® Ceremony will be held on January 26th, 2013.
“My dad and I are honored and humbled that this film was made. It’s an amazing legacy, not only for our family but also for the city of Winston-Salem,” said Tracy Myers, one of the films stars.
Nanton previously won an Emmy Award for his passionate work as one of the Directors of the inspirational short film documentary, “Jacob’s Turn.” He is also nominated this year for the documentary film “Let Your Life Speak.”
