“What an honor to win this award,” said Bryant Wilson, On Hold Company CEO. “This video was inspired by the current fascination in pop culture with zombie television shows and movies. And while the video is a lot of fun to watch, it illustrates just how effective on hold messaging can be in any scenario where a caller is placed on hold.”
Jonathan Kudabeck, On Hold Company’s marketing director, wrote and directed ‘Zombie Attack - 911 Call’. An award-winning film producer, Kudabeck’s work has aired nationally on PBS and screened at numerous festivals including the International Television Festival and New Orleans Film festival.
“We believe that on hold music and messaging plays a crucial role in customer service 24/7,” said Kudabeck. “But it is even more important during an emergency. We wanted our clients – and potential customers – to know that should an emergency arise, we can connect to their system remotely, and deliver a hold message customized to the immediate crisis. ‘Zombie Attack – 911 Call ‘ is a fun way to portray the service we provide.”
The two-minute 30-second video was produced by Clint McCommon and John Chambers and filmed with DSLR cameras in downtown Shreveport by Fairfield Studios.
Local actor Alexander Dafnis was cast in the lead with a number of On Hold Company employees playing zombie roles. Salem television series make-up artist Heather Beauvais did make-up.
Music composition and sound mix for this production were crafted by On Hold Company's Master Sound Engineer Tommy Granville, Jr. As a Grammy member, RIAA certified Platinum record producer and film composer, Granville boasts numerous music and film credits and awards.
