COUV.COM has earned another distinction in the 33rd annual Telly Awards.
The second winning video earned a Silver Telly, their highest honor. The production was donated by COUV.COM to the Vancouver Rotary Foundation to aid their fund raising efforts to enhance Marshall Community Park. After the video debuted at the foundation’s December 2011 gala a paddle raise secured over $34,000.
Marshall Park is located on 19-acres at 1015 E. McLoughlin Blvd. It is a full service park, complete with picnic / concert shelter area and full landscaping. Nearby stands the Luepke Center which supports active seniors, and the Marshall Community Center a community athletic facility with a large indoor pool.
Children from Central Park Child Care Center open the video giggling about what they enjoy about being outside. Others appearing in the video include Public Health Director John Wiseman, Executive Director of the Clark County Parks Foundation Cheri Martin, Parks Manager Jane Kleiner, Clark College Director of Child and Family Services Laurie Cornelius, Vancouver Clinic Pediatrician Devon Ebbing, and local icon and Co-Chair of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission Florence Wager. All spoke to the importance of outdoor play in the lives of children.
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979. The Silver Telly Council conducts the judging. The council is comprised of top industry professionals that are past winners of a Silver Telly. Over 13,000 entries are submitted annually from the finest ad agencies, production companies, TV stations, cable companies, interactive agencies and corporations in the world.
It is a remarkable achievement to be selected for this recognition and a double honor for COUV.COM to win two Tellys in one year.
The eight minute Marshall Park video was directed, shot and edited by Jordan Thompson and Miles Burnett. Original music was composed by Hamilton Boyce.
