Today the June/July issue of Documentary Magazine was released. Members of the International Documentary Association often see news about their on-goings published.
The following was published in this latest issue:
Producer/director Steven Fischer received two statuettes at the 27th Annual Telly Awards. Houdini, a magical, effects-heavy music video won in the Music Video category. Camp Med, a creative, theatrically-produced promotional video produced for Virginia Hospital Center and NVCC Medical Education Campus, won in the Film/Video: Information category.
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. Each year, the Telly Awards generate millions of impressions in national and local media.
Fischer is currently at work on a documentary called Freedom Dance with award-winning animator/producer Craig Herron. The story follows the dramatic escape of a cartoonist from Hungary to the United States during the violent 1956 Hungarian Revolution. Last year the IDA selected Freedom Dance for fiscal sponsorship.
