Stanford Video wins at 36th Annual Telly Awards


STANFORD VIDEO, part of University Communications, won three bronze statuettes from the 36th Annual Telly Awards on March 9.

Stanford Video, whose studios are located on Pampas Lane, is the university’s video production unit, offering services ranging from high-definition broadcast to classroom podcasts to videotape and streaming media.

The Telly Awards honor “the very best local, regional and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions and work created for the web,” according to the organization’s web site. The same firm that makes the Oscar and Emmy designs the Telly statuette.

Under the category Employee Communications, videos made for Stanford’s Welcome Center stood out to the judges.

The annual Stanford Roundtable was recognized for the third time, having previously won in 2011 and 2012. Hosted by Lesley Stahl during Reunion Weekend last fall, the 2014 Roundtable at Stanford, “The Climate Conversation You Haven’t Heard,” has been rebroadcast nationally on public television.

Stanford Video’s senior producer and director, CHANDRA SIMON, traveled to British Columbia to make the video above about ART STERRITT, who received Stanford Law School’s 2014 Bright Award. The Bright Award is given to “an individual who has made significant contributions in the environmental preservation and sustainability area.”

Simon says, “It is a great honor for all of us at Stanford Video, along with Stanford Law and the Bright Award, to be recognized for a piece that shines light on a conservation hero, Art Sterritt, and the inspiring work being carried out to protect the Great Bear Rainforest.”
