Canvas Films selected as a winner for the 34th Annual Telly Awards
The Telly Awards has named Canvas Films as a Bronze winner in the 34th Annual Telly Awards for their piece titled “Can You Tell.” With nearly 11,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.
“Can You Tell” was a branding spot created for Hair Club who was looking for a new high-energy creative commercial to run along with their traditional direct response advertising. Utilizing exciting visuals, up-beat music and network-quality 2D and 3D graphic packages the team at Canvas Films created a high-impact commercial that targeted Hair Club’s core demographic.
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, videos and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Silver Telly, our highest honor. Approximately 25% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Canvas Films’ accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
“By working hand-in-hand with the Advertising and Marketing Department at Hair Club, the team at Canvas Films conceived, produced and edited this exciting commercial,” said Philip Ruesch, Director of Photography at Canvas Films. “We were all proud of the finished product and excited for it to be recognized for excellence by the committee at the Telly Awards.”
