Camp Med was also a winner at the 27th Annual Telly Awards, in the Film/Video: Information catagory. Camp Med is a promotion short I wrote, produced, and directed last summer for Virginia Hospital Center and NVCC Medical Education Campus.
The story focuses on a school girl who excitedly writes a “what I did this summer” report about her experience at a real-life medical education camp for pre-teens.
The piece starred a talent young actress named Caroline Gotschall. She’s professional beyond her years, and photographs very well. Lance Graham took care of my sound (production and post) and did a fantastic job! He’s also a soulful composer. Check out his tunes.
The piece first aired in October on NVCC-TV. According to Don Johnson, Outreach Specialist at MEC, the video has been screened for over 3,500 middle school students as far south as Richmond and as far north as Camden, New Jersey in efforts to increase awareness about this unique educational camp. The video will also screen in Atlanta at the Career College Transition Initiative conference in March, and again at the Virginia Community College System Conference in Roanoke, Virginia in April.
The Telly Awards are a major competition in the national advertising, television, and video production fields and is one of the most sought-after awards by leading industry firms, production companies, and ad agencies. Designed by the same firm that makes the Oscar® and Emmy®, the Telly statuette weighs more than 4 1/2 pounds. Each year, the Telly Awards generates millions of impressions in national and local media.
Enough of that. Onward we move…
