Porter Pictures client Jerri Sher wins the Emmy!
The 67th Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards may have been held a month ago, but first time winner Jerri Sher is still on cloud nine.
Sher — who now lives in Los Angeles, but who lived for many years on the North Shore in Peabody and Marblehead — won for her role as a producer of “Santa Monica Cares” in the Public, Municipal and Operator Produced Cable category.
Sher directed and produced one of three segments in the short film; her subject was Leroy S., who went from living on the streets to independent living with the help of Step Up, a charitable organization.
“I think I flew to the stage… I was floating,” said Sher, adding that the other four nominated shorts were very good, and that she appreciates knowing that her peers value her work. The Emmy Awards recognize excellence in the television industry.
