My DVD, Live at the Diana Wortham Theatre won a 2007 Telly Award for Entertainment Production. Some of you may be thinking, “Huh? What’s that?” (Don’t worry – I didn’t know either.) Telly Awards were explained to me this way by someone in the film industry: “It’s like an Emmy Award. Only it’s for local and independent productions. It’s really quite prestigious.”
And so it is.
The truth is that Kim Ryan White and her company, Viewfinders Inc, are responsible for the award. (Let’s be honest. I just showed up and played.) Kim is one of those brilliant women who makes me tilt my head, RCA Victor dog like, and think, “Can she really be that cool and together and business savvy?” I’m telling you, the woman rocks. She masterminded the whole production and editing and every other last detail. (Then she lured me into the editing suite and tempted me with slick and beautiful effects. She’d show me clips of rendered effects until I was glazed over with desire. THEN she’d tell me how much extra they cost. The editing suite is an opium den.)
The Telly Awards website says this:
The Telly Awards honor the very best local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions. Since 1978, our mission has been to strengthen the visual arts community by inspiring, promoting, and supporting creativity. The 27th annual Telly Awards received over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents.
