DigiNovations' North Bridge Productions Accepts Top Fundraising Video Honors at 2004 Telly Awards
A capital campaign video for the Brimmer and May School has won the highest honor for Fundraising Video at the 2004 Telly Awards, announced this week. The ten-minute film, which tells the school's story through the voices of its students, teachers, and families, was produced by the creative team at North Bridge Productions, a division of DigiNovations of Concord, Massachusetts.
Concord-based DigiNovations won top honors in the Fundraising Video catergory of the 25th annual Telly Awards competition, announced this week. DigiNovations' North Bridge Productions was recognized for its work on a ten-minute film it created in support of a capital fundraising campaign for Brimmer and May School in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. The Telly Awards represent the premiere international-level honor for local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions.
Produced by Paul Dewey, videographed by George Mandl and Michael Kolowich and edited by George Mandl, the film lays out the case for investment in the school's future with exquisite videography. "The key to this film," observed DigiNovations president and executive producer Michael Kolowich, "is that the entire story is told in the words of the participants -- parents, students, and faculty. Narration was entirely unnecessary when the characters in the film could articulate the need so clearly and powerfully." North Bridge Productions is currently working with Brimmer and May to produce a recruiting video to show to prospective students and their parents.

The film was also honored earlier this year with a VISTA award from the National Professional Videographers Association. DigiNovations also won a 2004 Telly Award for Video Animation for a film it created for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and was named a Finalist in three other categories: Corporate Image, Educational Video, and Recruitment Video.
