2010 Telly Award Recipient!


One of the “Documercials” that I produced for client Joe Sohm – a quick tour through his incredible book on photographing America called Visions Of America, has received a 31st Annual Bronze Telly Award in the Professional Infomercial category. The category was open to online distributed videos this year, and with the beautiful imagery and historical relevance of Joe’s book and the way he tells the stories of getting the images over the past 20 years, was indeed compelling.

Joe first came to me after viewing another client’s “Documercial” I produced for Ojai artists and authors Alice & Richard Matzkin, for their book The Art of Aging. He wanted a piece that worked for both showing the content of his book and shared his passion for the topic of him life’s work: “Photographing Democracy”.

I solicited help with shooting the video interviews from colleague Michael Anderson (Extra Mile Films) and used the Panasonic P2 HD cameras on loan from Panasonic for the production and testing of my book The Green Screen Handbook. We also used the Reflecmedia system for a shot used toward the end of the video that needed green screen compositing, but needed to be ultra portable and compact. The project was edited in Final Cut Pro and Adobe After Effects. Music was provided by Roger Kellaway and Alan & Marilyn Bergman.
