In June, I was informed that the video I produced for our Theology Department was honored with an Award of Distinction from the Videographer Awards. The Videographer Awards Competition is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP). The judges are industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry.
There were approximately 1,600 entries in this year's competition. The top 12% were honored with an Award of Excellence. The next 12% were given an Award of Distinction.
The video was an achievement borne from collaboration. I worked very closely with Dr. Christopher McMahon, who conceived and organized the project. Over a period of 6 weeks, we worked together gathering all of the necessary interviews and coverage, then went through a handful of edited drafts before we landed on the final piece.
The award is a custom-designed acrylic clapboard, and it currently sits in the display case in the Humanities and Fine Arts hallway by Fr. Rene's office. If you're in the area, give it a look. It really is quite cool.
