Focused Motion was awarded a Bronze Telly for the production work it did on a project last year.
The project was a series of education videos for the Sertoma Butterfly House and Marine Cove in Sioux Falls, SD. They featured two animated characters (Sky the butterfly and Fin the fish) as they learned about themselves and other creatures living in the Butterfly House from Diana, an expert in all things with fins and wings. The series is aimed at pre-school to 3rd grade children to teach them about animal and plant life. Steam Digital was in charge of the animation and Giant Leap Design gets credit for adapting the characters from still images into very cool vectors.
Taken from: www.tellyawards.com: “The Telly Awards were founded in 1978 to honor excellence in local, regional and cable TV commercials. Non-broadcast and TV program categories were soon added. Today it is one of the most sought after awards by industry leaders.”
Focused Motion used several tools for this production including Polecam and Steadicam to get motion into the video and create an environment for Sky to fly through. Lots of children participated as actors in the production. We also had a talented writer Jina Lund and a dedicated crew. Congratulations everyone.
