LAI Video Wins A Lot of Peer Awards
The Television, Internet and Video Association recognized LAI Video with eight Peer awards on Saturday night. Eight! Representing the very best in production, it was an honor to join the Washington DC video-making community and walk away with some serious paper and trophy hardware.
In total, the LAI Video team collected one gold, four silvers and three bronze awards across a variety of categories including excellence in public relations, communications, education, motion graphics and scriptwriting.
Rob Kramer’s light-hearted touch with paper recycling gave us a silver for Best Public Service Announcement. Sean Kimber’s Life of a Payment masterpiece continued to steamroll through awards programs, while Justin Kelly’s written words were recognized for his urgent spot on loss prevention in retail.
Anthony Jacoway co-shot and edited a promo for the boutique shop Riffraff, and Tiffany Lewis educated nurses about postpartum hemorrhaging with clean and clinical (and stylish) motion graphics. Jun Yang’s award-winning eye was honored across nearly all of our live-action submissions, and Tori Furphy project managed all eight awardees. Ellyn Church and I witnessed the whole thing happen from the LAI Video table.
While video-making can often be grueling and even gruesome, it's always nice to interrupt the madness, dress up and celebrate excellence in our craft. And this team is truly excellent in their craft.
The awards ceremony was held at the Embassy of France. In the wake of last Friday’s attacks, there was a special acknowledgement to the audio-visual community’s commitment to always capturing the story with precision and passion.
