No, that’s not a tan you’re seeing (it is only February, after all).
We’re all bronzed out after learning that four UCSD-TV produced programs have received Bronze Telly Awards, a competition honoring the very best film and video productions, groundbreaking online video content, and outstanding local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs.
Our arts producer, John Menier, has his hands full with three of the stunning statues in three different categories:
“La Jolla Symphony & Chorus: Color” took home the bronze in Live Events;
“San Diego Opera Spotlight: Faust” won in Documentary;
and “Star Struck,” a preview of artist Do Ho Suh’s new Stuart Collection installation,“Fallen Star,” took home the bronze in the Cultural category.
Jennifer Ford, our prolific health producer, also nabbed herself a bronze Telly in the Health and Fitness category for her moving documentary, “Parkinson’s Disease: A Dose of Hope.”
Congratulations to Jennifer, John and the entire UCSD-TV team!
We’re proud to announce that two UCSD-TV produced arts programs with longtime community partners have been awarded Bronze Telly Awards!
San Diego Opera Spotlight: Romeo and Juliet: A behind-the-scenes look at San Diego Opera’s 2010 production of Gounod’s Shakespeare-inspired masterpiece.
This is the fifth award for the Opera Spotlight series, which UCSD-TV and San Diego Opera have co-produced since 1995 — including this year with San Diego Opera’s 2011 season.
La Jolla Music Society: SummerFest 2009: Stewart Copeland, Composer: Four original compositions by percussionist Stewart Copeland, best known as drummer for superstar rock band The Police.
This is the first award for the SummerFest series and, after twelve years of partnering with La Jolla Music Society, we are confident it won’t be the last.
UCSD-TV is no stranger to the Telly Awards, having picked up fifteen of them since 2004. The Telly Awards honor the very best local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, and work created for the Web. Since 1978, their mission has been to strengthen the visual arts community by inspiring, promoting, and supporting creativity. The 31st Annual Telly Awards received over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents.
Congratulations to our talented arts producer John Menier and, of course, to our valued community partners, San Diego Opera and La Jolla Music Society.
