Concord, MA (PRWEB) June 7, 2004
DigiNovations' North Bridge Productions was recognized in five different categories for its creative excellence in video production in the 2004 international Telly Award competition, announced this week. Films created by the Concord (MA)-based creative firm won top honors in the Video Animation and Fundraising Video categories, and were named Finalists in the Corporate Image, Educational Video, and Recruitment Video categories. The Telly Awards represent the premiere international-level honor for local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions.
The award winning films were created on behalf of four different Boston-area educational institutions: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Perkins School for the Blind, Brimmer and May School, and the LEAP School. "We've set out on a mission to bring the power and impact of digital video production to institutions and companies throughout New England," said Michael Kolowich, president and executive producer of DigiNovations. "It's fabulous to be recognized by our peers in the creative community, and even better to see the results our video productions help bring about."
The Telly Award for Video Animation went to a film that North Bridge Productions produced for MIT's Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies in Cambridge. The film shows how emerging technologies and processing techniques at the molecular scale can produce new materials and devices that can better protect soldiers in decades to come. The film about ISN's vision and work, "Soldier of Future", is shown to visitors to the Institute, as well as at conferences and meetings around the world. The animation for the film was designed and created in collaboration with Boston Animation of Concord, Massachusetts. The film was also named a Finalist in the Education Video category.
The top Telly award for Fundraising Video went to a ten-minute film that North Bridge Productions created for Brimmer and May School in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. The program lays out the case for investment in the school's future with exquisite videography. "The key to this film," observed DigiNovations president and executive producer Michael Kolowich, "is that the entire story is told in the words of the participants -- parents, students, and faculty. Narration was entirely unnecessary when the characters in the film could articulate the need so clearly and powerfully."
In the Corporate Image category, recognition as a Finalist went to "Faces of Perkins", a film which reviews the worldwide history and mission of the Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown, Massachusetts. North Bridge Productions produced the film in preparation for the upcoming 175th anniversary celebration of the school.
In the Recruitment Video category, North Bridge Production won kudos as a Finalist for "LEAP Forward", a film it created for the LEAP School in Lexington, Concord and Sudbury, Massachusetts. The film captures the unique features of this language enrichment arts program for toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarten children.
