“We’re honored to receive this nationally recognized award,” said Bryant Wilson, On Hold Company CEO. “This video – which has already enjoyed more than 60,000 views online – employs a zombie theme that is culturally familiar and outlandishly funny, showcasing just how effective on hold music and messaging can be in any scenario where a caller is placed on hold.”

Wilson credits the On Hold Company creative team with creating the video. “We not only wanted our clients to see that on hold messaging can work in the worst of circumstances, but we wanted them to see the exceptional talent and creativity within our company,” he said.

‘Zombie Attack - 911 Call’ was written, directed and edited by On Hold Company Marketing Director Jonathan Kudabeck, an award-winning film producer whose work has aired nationally on PBS and screened at numerous festivals including the International Television Festival and New Orleans Film festival.

Tommy Granville, Jr., On Hold Company’s master sound engineer, composed original music and mixed sound for the two-minute and 30-second video. Granville, a Grammy member, RIAA certified Platinum record producer and film composer, boasts numerous music and film credits and awards.

On Hold Company employees played various zombie roles with local actor Alexander Dafnis cast in the lead and Salem television series make-up artist Heather Beauvais doing make-up.

The video was produced by Clint McCommon and John Chambers and filmed with DSLR cameras in downtown Shreveport by Fairfield Studios.
