The 32nd annual Telly Awards were announced recently and The Big Picture is honored to have received three Telly Awards. The Telly Awards receive over 13,000 entries annually from the finest ad agencies, production companies, TV stations, cable companies, interactive agencies and corporations from around the world. It is a remarkable achievement to be selected for recognition.
Below are the three videos for which we were recognized Kudos to the whole team!
Android Controller – Sales Category – Silver Telly Award
Wells Fargo Center for the arts – Fund-Raising category – Bronze Telly Award
SanDisk Secure Access – How-To/Instructional – Bronze Telly Award
In what is become an annual tradition (this will be the third time) The Big Picture will have the opportunity to shoot this year’s fireworks at the beautiful Louis M. Martini winery in Napa.
The show is choreographed to music for a fully immersive sound and light experience. Check out the show from last Year!
We are so pleased and honored to have taken home two Emmy® awards this year– Chris Roy for Editing “Jay Maisel”, and George Lang for Directing “Jay Maisel”.
This piece is a great example of an American corporation aligning itself with a recognized award-winning artist to tell his story. Rather than use the time for a major commercial push, they chose to tell the story of the artist, and thus conveyed that this alignment message was about quality in the person and the company recognizing that person. This ended up being the most powerful message that there can be.
Below are some images of George and Chris accepting their awards. Congratulations guys!
A few weeks ago The Big Picture had the opportunity to shoot some video of the opening night of Hugh Jackman’s one man show at the Curran Theatre in San Francisco, put on by SHN – San Francisco’s premier theatrical entertainment event company. He is backed on stage by a full 18 piece orchestra, some smoking hot backup singers, and guest appearances such as Richard Marx!
You may not know this, but behind those devilish good looks there is a Tony award winning theatre actor who has comedic timing, powerful vocal chords, and some slick dance moves. We love how hard he works. He was at the theatre from dawn until almost midnight. He eats on the set. He works so well with the crew and other principles in the show. Always a gentleman and he even nicknamed George “Jordan” and used him in the first show.
It’s a great show, and funny. George has seen this show 4 times in the making and it is so rock solid. The production team here has a winner, you really must see this show! Get a front frow seat, he’ll come sit next to you.
