Faculty filmmaker’s work nominated for Mid-America Emmy
A University of Missouri College of Engineering instructor was nominated last fall for a Mid-America Emmy for his documentary film, “Joplin, Missouri — A Tornado Story.” The film was one of five nominated in the Documentary-Cultural category.
Chip Gubera, on the faculty of the Computer Science Department’s, information technology program, made the documentary to chronicle the May 22, 2011, tornado that ripped through his hometown.
The 92-minute film premiered in Joplin in early May 2012, and in Columbia on the one-year anniversary of the tornado. He also screened it at Mizzou in September. The film additionally has aired on local television stations in Joplin and St. Louis.
“A Tornado Story” won the Best Feature Documentary and a Best Director for Gubera at the 2012 St. Louis Filmmaker’s Showcase; Best Feature Film at the Cornfed Film Festival in Macomb, Ill., and was screened at the St. Louis International Film Festival.
Gubera’s film ultimately didn’t take home a Mid-America Emmy; another documentary about the Joplin tornado, “Deadline in Disaster” won. The Missouri Press Association created the winning film and Gubera served as its aftereffects adviser.
