Mountain Mover Media wins two Rocky Mountain Emmys
In early November, Santa Fe-based video production company Mountain Mover Media was awarded with Rocky Mountain Emmys for Becoming: ORLANDO DUGI in the Arts Programming (Short Form) category and for Yo Prometo for best Musical Arrangement/Composition. Becoming: ORLANDO DUGI is an eight-minute biopic on Navajo fashion designer and former Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) Artist-in-Residence Orlando Dugi. It was directed, shot, and edited by Mountain Mover Media’s Kaela Waldstein and produced by IAIA Assistant Professor Amber-Dawn Bear Robe (Blackfoot/Siksika) for the Southwest Association for Indian Arts (SWAIA).
This is Bear Robe’s and Waldstein’s second Emmy for a collaborative project. The first was their 2018 video Walk with Pride: Santa Fe Indian Market’s Haute Couture Fashion Show. The Dugi short follows the creation and reveal of the artist’s 2020 Capsule Collection and explores the inspirations for his work. It was featured at
