OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (PRWEB) November 29, 2012
Drive Motion Pictures has won the prestigious Award of Merit from The Indie Fest for the documentary film, “The Paladins.” The film competition recognizes exceptional achievement in craft and creativity, and those who produce standout entertainment or contribute to profound social change.
Drive Motion Pictures explores the future of business in “The Paladins,” which looks at six businesses in very different industries and reveals the difference makers in each organization that have allowed them to flourish in these trying economic times.
“We are thrilled and honored to be selected by the committee for this award,” Executive Producer Brian Weaver said. “Our team set out to find some great business innovators in these trying times. This award is great recognition of their work telling those stories.”
The film chronicles the success of six companies in the United States and the United Kingdom — Hallmark Business Solutions, in Minneapolis; Pandora Jewelry, in Baltimore; Taser in Scottsdale, Ariz.; and Driscoll’s in Watsonville, Calif., and Lotus F1 race team and Richmond Housing Partnership, both in the U.K. While the individual businesses may be very different, they share one notable trait: the organizations each had a champion, a Paladin, who inspired the change that elevated the business to another level.
“With The Paladins, we were able to put a face on corporate success,” said Dena Hysell, writer and director of the film. “As we explored their stories, it became clear that each company had an individual who was the catalyst for change. We wanted to tell that story and show how strong organizations embrace change by encouraging innovation.”
This is the second Indie for Drive Motion Pictures, putting it in the ranks of other high-profile winners of this internationally respected award. The first came in 2010 ¬for the feature-length documentary “Daytona Dream,” which chronicles the year-long efforts of Level 5 Motorsports to assemble a dream team of elite race car drivers in hopes of winning North America’s most prestigious endurance racing event, the Rolex 24 At Daytona.
“The Indie is not an easy award to win,” said Indie Fest Chairman Thomas Baker, Ph.D. “Entries are received from around the world. The Indie helps to set the standard for craft and creativity.”
