Two videos that Centresource created were selected as winners in the 2015 36th Annual Telly Awards.

Silver Winner Telly AwardThe Silver Award, the highest possible honor, was awarded to Centresource for a client’s private video. Sometimes we are asked by our clients to create private videos to be used internally or for their sales staff to share directly with customers. We work a lot in the B2B arena and we’re seeing this type of project come up more and more. The same creative forces go into every video, regardless of if they are for private use or for a public forum. As much as we’d love to show you this one, we can’t! (But trust us, it’s bad ass!)

Bronze Winner Telly AwardsThe Bronze Award was awarded for a collaboration with Georgia-Pacific and UNICEF. This video was a unique challenge in that we had to produce and direct it in the US while it was being filmed in remote villages in China. The video highlights the partnership between GP and UNICEF called The GreenHands Project where they work to bring clean water and sanitation to 250 rural schools across China. Centresource created a storyboard and detailed shot list for a videographer in China, collaborated with them via Skype each day, and created the edit. Check it out below:

The Telly Awards exist to honor the best in commercial, TV, and non-broadcast video production. The first awards were given in 1979, and this year they received over 13,000 entries. Less than 10% were selected for the Silver Award. The judging is done by a group of over 500 industry professionals.
