Not every video for a client has won a Telly, but I produce every video to have the best possible shot at one.
Manhattan Beach, CA (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Bronze awards in the “How-To/Instructional” category went to Erin Manning Media this year at the 2013 Telly Awards, for three videos she produced last year for her clients. This will bring Erin Manning’s total Telly Award count to sixteen. In all, her videos have won thirteen bronze, two gold (for lifetime achievement), and one silver.
The Telly Awards have a different system for recognizing quality local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, video and film productions, and web commercials, videos and films. The entries are not pitted against each other, but instead each work is judged by its own merits by previous Silver Telly award winners. Only if the piece is rated high enough, will it earn a bronze or silver award.
This year, the Erin Manning videos that won Bronze Tellys were The Storyteller App for Crystal Cruises, How to Take Better Vacation Photos and Videos for SanDisk, and Creative Birthday Invitation Photos Using the Westcott Illusions Erin Manning Creation Kit for F.J. Westcott. Shooting/editing was done by Wes Malkin of Biscayne Productions. Manning wrote, produced, and hosted all three videos.
About the production process, Manning said, “Discovering what a client needs is different for each video. For Crystal Cruises, I worked with their ad agency on the script, but with SanDisk I collaborated with their PR department. At F.J. Westcott Company, I consulted directly with their marketing team and then created educational content to accompany my branded photo kits.”
Manning says, “Not every video for a client has won a Telly, but I produce every video to have the best possible shot at one.”
