GREENVILLE, S.C. – May 14, 2020 – Crawford Strategy, a full-service marketing and branding agency, recently received the Intermedia-Globe Silver Award from the World Media Festivals’ Television and Corporate Media Awards, an international award program based in Hamburg, Germany. Crawford’s joint entry in the category of animation with creative partner, Jean-Baptiste Chuat of The Fly Studios, and client, American Zinc Products, was selected from 795 entries worldwide.
The World Media Festivals’ Television & Corporate Media Awards honor and celebrate excellence in Television, Corporate Film, Web, Web TV and Print productions on an international scale. These Awards are acknowledged globally as symbols of the highest production standards and are one of the world's highest honors in visual competition. Experienced professionals from around the world serve in a volunteer capacity as judges who make decisions based on both creativity and effectiveness. Award winners are among the leaders in their profession.
“The Crawford team is passionate about providing our clients with creative work that delivers results, and it is an incredible honor to receive recognition from an international community,” said Andy Windham, President and Chief Strategy Officer of Crawford Strategy. “The people in our agency – and those with whom we partner – are storytellers to our very core and possess a dogged desire to both create and inspire. This particular project has been an incredibly special one for our team, and I’m thrilled to see it receive recognition on the global level.”
The award winning entry was created to help more clearly explain the complicated and perhaps confusing production process at American Zinc Products (AZP). Located in Mooresboro, North Carolina, AZP is a leading producer of special high-grade zinc and one of the only zinc producers in the world producing zinc from renewable sources. The video takes viewers on production journey from beginning to end, blending innovative animation technology with an easy-to-understand script that leaves one both educated and visually stimulated.
“When a project starts and you get a script with that much clarity and detail, you know you are in good hands,” said Jean-Baptiste Chuat, owner & art director of The Fly Studios. “Crawford Strategy is an incredible partner. They were always on top of a question or challenge and possessed a high sensibility for the production process in animation. We were lucky they trusted us with bringing their script to life. We are now humbled the world is seeing – and honoring – the finished product.”
