Concord, MA (PRWEB) November 5, 2004
Four video productions by DigiNovations of Concord, Massachusetts, won honors in the 2004 Spotlight Awards, hosted by the League of American Communications Professionals (LACP). The international competition recognizes the best print, video, and web-based public relations materials produced in nearly a dozen countries around the world. Three of the four video productions were judged to rank among the Top 100 Publicity Materials of 2004.
The number of awards and the high scores of its entries earned DigiNovations additional recognition as 2004 Silver ÂAgency of the YearÂ from LACP, an organization dedicated to supporting and recognizing excellence in the practice of professional communications. DigiNovations was the only video production company to be honored with the Agency of the Year designation. President and Executive Producer Michael Kolowich accepted the awards on behalf of the company.
The association awarded its Gold award for excellence in Corporate/Organizational Video to DigiNovations for its promotional film for Stellex Aerostructures, headquartered in Lebanon, New Jersey. Produced by Paul Dewey and videographed and edited by Michael Kolowich, this fast-paced corporate profile video powerfully showcases StellexÂs strong customer orientation through the voices and faces of Stellex employees. Engaging images of the companyÂs outstanding production facilities and two case studies round out the film.
DigiNovations also won Silver honors for excellence in Corporate/Organizational Video for a five-minute film it created for Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Needing a film to introduce visitors, media, recruits, and sponsors to its spectacular new Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies, MIT turned to DigiNovations and North Bridge Productions with a challenge: help viewers visualize applications of new technologies twenty to thirty years hence, and to explain science conducted on scales measured in billionths of an inch. Michael Kolowich and his team employed a combination of video and 3D animation to create a dramatic, compelling film, shot and edited in widescreen format.
Proving its versatility as a video production company, DigiNovations also garnered Silver Honors for a recruiting film created for the LEAP School, a highly innovative, multi-location pre-school program serving the needs of children in the Western Boston suburbs. LEAP needed an overview of their programs and mission Â one which could essentially take prospective parents into classrooms to see children in action Â without disrupting classroom activities. DigiNovationsÂ video gives LEAP a powerful new way to let the action in their classrooms Âspeak for itselfÂ as teachers and administrators talk to interested parents.
DigiNovations won a final project-level award, a Bronze, for a video created for Methods Machine Tools of Sudbury, Massachusetts. As producer Paul Dewey put it, ÂOur goal was to craft a film that left viewers with a clear understanding that Methods has been Â and will be Â around for a long time due to its strong values and enterprising, solution-oriented capabilities.Â Strong videography and editing by Benjamin Eckstein catapults this film out of the realm of traditional industrial videos, highlighting the fact that MethodsÂ approach to its industry is anything-but-ordinary. This video serves as a calling card for the Methods sales team, showing customers what Methods does and illuminating the core beliefs of the enterprise.
The four Spotlight awards for DigiNovations projects and recognition by the LACP as its top US-based ÂAgency of the YearÂ recipient represent a remarkable achievement for a production company in its debut year for competition. "We're proud to be doing work that not only helps our client organizations deliver on their important missions Â but to have received the creative recognition of our peers," said Kolowich. "Our clients have important and engaging stories to showcase, and we are proud to help them bring those stories to life in impactful new ways."
