2011 Telly Awards

2011 Telly AwardDuring 2010 I worked with a small team of talented digital and production artists producing a variety of promos, short films, interviews, multi-camera live events, commercials, concerts, and ad campaigns. We worked well together, had fun, and even when straining against a tight timeline, pulled off some real successes. Everyone in our group is a multi-talented, skilled artisan; from conception and writing of short films and promos, to picking up the camera for a shoot, to working on motion graphics and visual effects, to producing a live, streamed event.

I've just learned that two of our promotional films were selected by the Telly Awards for recognition in three categories for the 2011 awards. I am fortunate to have worked with these guys and am proud to share this achievement with them.

A Thought on Photo Challenges

Another Blue WorldOccasionally I submit my work to miscellaneous photo challenges and competitions. Mostly it's a way of getting feedback from a greater photography community than the ones I can access in the first person and it's almost always rewarding to hear new perspectives. A few weeks ago I submitted an old work Another Blue World to one of the photo challenges hosted by Digital Photography Review. The challenge theme was the color blue and my photo was voted into the number six spot out of 200 entries. It's always nice to get recognition (even sixth place ;) ) especially when it's an older, somewhat forgotten piece, and I'm reminded that sometimes it's these little things that can breathe a little bit of fresh air back into your photography and re-energize you.

Screen Genius Award for Ocean Odyssey

A little surprise arrived in the mail recently when I learned that my work as colorist on the film Ocean Odyssey for the Smithsonian Institution was recognized by the Studio Group's Screen Genius Awards.

Ocean Odyssey opened in the fall of 2008 when the Smithsonian Institution opened the Sant Ocean Hall in the National Museum of Natural History. The $90 million dollar permanent exhibit features the film projected on eight screens wrapping 270º around the upper bay of the hall. It was a great experience working on the project and a lovely surprise to receive this two years later.
