The IVCA is the trade body for video production professionals, and as such, it oversees some of the industry’s most prestigious awards schemes. One such scheme is the IVCA Clarions, which rewards marketing campaigns with CSR, community development, education and welfare at their core.
Today’s the day of the 2013 Clarion Awards, and a number of Spectrecom team members have been representing the company over at BMA House where the ceremony has been taking place. And, as good luck (and inspired filmmaking!) would have it, we’ve just picked up two of the Gold Awards.
One of the Golds came in the category of Best Local Government Film, with our Fit Cities film being recognised.
Made earlier this year, and based around the concept of ‘Make Your Mark’, the film involved designers, architects, politicians and ordinary Londoners offering a call-to-arms aimed at improving public health as part of the capital’s Olympic legacy.
Our other Gold was awarded to ‘Let Me Work’, a campaign film created for the charity Livability, which won Best Third Sector Campaign.
Livability aims to improve the opportunities available to disabled and disadvantaged people, and this film helps to raise awareness of the challenges facing disabled people seeking employment.
Here are both of the award-winning films: Let Me Work, which was directed by Steve Milton…
…and GLA Fit Cities, which was directed by Ben Kent and Matt Farman.
