‘Creating Frank Cho’s World’ wins an Emmy

Creating Frank Cho’s World,” a web documentary featuring a behind-the-scenes look at comic book artist Frank Cho (Liberty Meadows) and his crew creating the August 29, 2010 cover of Washington Post Magazine, won a regional Emmy for the Arts/Entertainment – News Single Story category at the 53rd Emmy Awards show this past weekend.

Filmed and edited by WaPo’s Alexandra Garcia and Ben de la Cruz, the documentary/time-lapse video shows the creative process and work that went into building Cho’s hand-drawn set for the cover shoot. In the video, Cho—who tried “not to look like an idiot” while riding behind his busty brunette heroine “Brandy”—said it was “exciting” and “intimidating” to see his creations larger than life.
