I know Jesus Christ is our Savior and loves all his children. My prayer is my work, in some small way, can also reflect the beauty, love and mercy of Christ.
Thanks Mark, Cameron and all those who helped with project.
Tonight was the 2006 UPVA Award Ceremony for our videos we entered last year. Out of ten categories, I won nine 1st place awards and one 2nd place award.
The way these awards were judged was really exciting and also the reason they were a little late in getting awarded. We have spent the last five months producing a website where all of the videos that entered were placed to be judged. Professional videographers from all over the country were invited to judge the videos on seven different criteria by logging on to this website with their assigned password. They were also able to give feedback on each video they viewed. Special thanks to Giant Brothers Media for making this possible!
I think this marks a sign of things to come in the judging process not only for our organization, but others nationwide as well. This means that when you win an award, it is judged by some of the best videographers in the country and raises the credibility of the awards.
Since we now have this system in place, we will be accepting entrees for this year's competition until Nov. 7th and then have our 2007 Awards Banquet on Jan. 2nd!
Danielle and Drew were both there for my awards and it was awesome seeing how our local association is really progressing and getting involved. Thanks 2007 Board - YOU ROCK!!!
I won a Gold (Best of Category) Award for Wedding Post-Ceremony. I'll tell you something, they had some absolutely AMAZING videos from all over the world and the competition was incredible. I am truly honored to be placed with some of these unbelievable videographers like:
Jason Magbanua Wedding Videography from the Phillipines
One Shot Production Co. from Hong Kong
VHVideo.com from Florida
Blue Skies Cinema from California
.... and the list goes on and on.
The other award I received was a Community Service Award for my work in Africa. I just have to say that I was fortunate enough to listen to the Lord's promptings to help these orphans and then receive divine guidance in the entire project. What a wonderful project in which to take part. Very humbling and fulfilling at the same time.
Danielle and Drew were there for the awards ceremony and I felt so proud to have them by my side. Wahoo!
I just found out today that I won four Platinum "Best of Show" awards
and one Gold Award!
This is what their website says,
"A Meaningful Award...
The Aurora is hard to win, no question. We did that because the Aurora Award has to mean something! When you win an Aurora, the prestige and credibility factors for you are extremely high. For twelve years we have worked to establish that reputation. Every year we hear from people who have won other "give away" competitions who didn't win an Aurora. Rest assured that Aurora judging is stringent.
The Aurora Awards are not a 'buy an award' video competition. When you win an Aurora, you know you've made something good.

It is critical in any film/video endeavor for clients to understand the quality of a product. The Aurora Awards are an important measure in how a film or video is judged by industry professionals."

This is really exciting because the Aurora Awards are really challenging to win - a true achievement! This makes 18 awards so far this year. I have entered only one other contest which will be announced in Las Vegas in two weeks - WEVA. This is the pinnacle of awards for wedding videographers worldwide so winning anything at all will be incredible. I'll keep everyone up to date and wish me the best!
