CCPTV’s newest hire, Sikemi Williams, took home a prestigious Emmy award at the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awards ceremony on September 28, 2019.
She received this prestigious honor for her graphics/animation work on the opening credits of “Strange College,” a much-honored maximalist science-fiction program about reanimated corpses, black-ops organizations, fringe science, alien invasions, transdimensional beings, secret societies, plucky college newspaper reporters and more.
Williams joined Community College of Philadelphia as a part-time employee about a year ago, and recently was hired to work full-time.
“Winning an Emmy still feels so surreal,” she said. “I am so excited, grateful and very happy to have won in the Graphics/Animation category. Having worked in creating content all my life, winning this Emmy is like a pat on the back for the many years of hard work on the job.”
“The staff and crew of CCPTV are proud of Sikemi and proud that this show met the high level of excellence required to obtain this accolade,” Allan Kobernick, CCP’s director of Multimedia Services, said.
“Strange College,” written by assistant professor Frank Fritz, produced and directed by Allan Kobernick, is its first fiction program produced and filmed on the CCP campus. To date, the program has won more than 10 accolades, including inclusions in international film festivals, and awards for its score.
