Boston-area video producer DigiNovations has won nine awards for its work for five clients in the 30th Annual TELLY Awards, an international competition whose winners were announced during the past week. The awards honor the best work of the most respected ad agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world. DigiNovations productions selected for honors from nearly 11,000 entries included work for Boston College, Boston College Law School, Appalachian Mountain Club, Global Furniture, and NACA (Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America).

"It's important to benchmark DigiNovations' work periodically against that of other leading video production companies, and I'm pleased that we compare favorably," said executive producer Michael Kolowich. "What's even more important, though, is that every one of these productions is delivering results for our clients every day -- in the form of online video, at live events and presentations, or on DVD."

The documentary film "Light the World", produced for Boston College's 150th anniversary campaign, captured the competition's top award, a Silver Telly Award for Corporate Image Productions, as well as an additional Bronze TELLY Award for Fundraising Video Productions. Produced by Michael Kolowich, Lee Phillips, and Barry Ouellette, the film captures the spirit and culture of service at Boston College through interviews with eight alumni whose work has changed the world in some meaningful way. Bill Charette was the Director of Photography for this production, and Mike Chapman and Michael Kolowich were the post-production editors. View "Light the World".

The film won Bronze TELLY honors for Nature/Wildlife productions and for Charitable/Non-Profit Productions. The videography of DigiNovations Director of Photography, Bill Charette, was also honored with a Bronze TELLY for Cinematography/Videography.
