Some guy I know was pretty happy to find out that a video he did for work won a 2008 bronze Telly Award. He wrote a silly clip previewing the last Super Bowl; the people judging in the “online video-news category apparently found it pleasing:
My friend is quick to point out that while he wrote the clip, the woman who produced it deserves much of the credit, because he’s still an idiot when it comes to editing video. The supporting cast did an excellent job as well, he said.
Although he’s happy with the recognition, my friend isn’t quite sure whether the Telly Awards are especially prestigious. He’s told that about 15 percent of the entrants qualify for awards … so that’s something
But, he said, the little trophy guys are kind of interesting.
Especially if his company buys one for him.
