It’s been a pretty busy year for Dawnrunner on the Awards front, though, we were pretty excited when we found out we won 4 AVA Awards! The AVA Award was one of the first awards that we, as a company, had ever won. The categories we won in this year were pretty exciting as well!
Platinum AVA Award: “The Arts: Brings Kids Back to Life” – Video for the Web/Non-Profit
Platinum AVA Award: “The Darkest Matter” – James Fox – Creativity Directing
Gold AVA Award: Game Developers Choice Awards 2012 – Video Production/Motion Graphics Company
Gold AVA Award: The Darkest Matter – Katy Guttman – On-Camera Talent
We are really excited that Katy Guttman won an award for her performance in THE DARKEST MATTER! We work really hard to make the Film Experience Camp a fun, and rewarding program; but seeing the hard work of the kids translate to recognition of this magnitude is quite pleasing!
