The 39th Annual Telly Awards recognized Impact Communications with four of the coveted statues. The Tellys are a premier award honoring video and television programs across all screens and are judged by a group of more than 200 industry leaders and previous award-winning video professionals. Established in 1979, the awards receive over 12,000 entries from all 50 states and across five continents. Typically, only about 10 percent of entries are awarded a Telly. Unlike other competitions, at the Telly Awards, a Silver Award is the highest honor, with Bronze coming in a close second. Impact Communications earned awards this year in a variety of categories including Editing, Cinematography, Recruitment and Motivation.
- Impact took a Silver Award in the Editing category and a Bronze Award in the Cinematography category for Junior Achievement Kentuckiana , a video promoting the new Business Hall of Fame exhibit at the Kentucky International Convention Center. Impact shot footage and interviews on location at several greater Louisville landmark locations. The exhibit, which Impact also produced and installed, features a program honoring Hall of Fame Laureate inductees as well as six large, vertically-positioned monitors across which is displayed a dramatic skyline of Louisville. Illustrated animations of featured locations invite visitors to touch a screen to hear from local business leaders about how wonderful of an area Kentuckiana is to live, work and play.
- The ADMI Career Journey video received a Bronze Award in the Recruitment category. The video features a variety of soundbites from executive and field leadership team members, providing a heartfelt and very personal glimpse into why they joined the team and how working for Aspen Dental Management Inc. has changed their lives. Impact shot and edited this recruitment video using two Red Epic cameras, in a straight on view, combined with a behind-the-scenes, side view. Shot on a black backdrop, the viewer is immediately drawn to the interview subject and their personal career journey story.
- Impact received a Bronze Award in the Motivational category for a video our team shot and edited for Signet Jewelers on behalf of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. Each year Signet works to raise awareness and funds in support of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children.® The video, “Cancer Was Just a Bump in the Road,” tells the story of a 13-year-old girl whose positive attitude and determination helped her through multiple rounds of chemotherapy. She is now in remission and living a full and productive life. Impact’s work on the video included research and scriptwriting, shooting and editing the final piece.
