Sheridan grads nab Emmy wins

September 19, 2018

Two Sheridan alumni were recognized at the Creative Arts Emmys, which took place on Sept. 16.

Craig Henighan, a 1995 graduate of Sheridan’s Media Arts program, took home the Emmy for Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series for his work on Stranger Things. 

Wendy Hallam, a 1987 graduate of Sheridan’s Media Arts program, won the Emmy for Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series for her work on The Handmaid’s Tale.   

This is the second consecutive Emmy win for Henighan, who was recognized for his work on Stranger Things last year, when he won an Emmy in the same category.

Henighan has also worked on sound for many other productions, including the mother!, Black Swan, 13th and Hidden Figures. 

Hallam Martin has worked as an editor on such popular Canadian series as Being Erica and Rookie Blue. She’s earned awards from the Directors Guild of Canada for her work on Queer as Folk, The Tudors and The Borgias, and has won Canadian Cinema Editors Awards and American Cinema Editors Awards for The Handmaid’s Tale.

“Congratulations to Craig and Wendy on their Emmy wins,” said Janet Morrison, President and Vice Chancellor at Sheridan. “Sheridan alumni continue to excel in their chosen professions, and we are delighted to celebrate in their success.”
