the film set
The American Business Awards were given out two nights ago. I picture a ceremony in New Yawk Sitty, with the men in black-tie and the women in sophisticated evening gowns and subtle jewelry. It could just as well have been an after-work chicken buffet, for all the facts I have at my fingertips. I would never have heard of these awards if not for the fact (at my fingertips) that my husband, John Sandel, along with the friendly geniuses at Superfreako Productions, created the video for Vertical Response, which won the award for "Video: Other."
Other! Isn't that great? It has a certain cachet.
Vertical Response beat out Dow Corning, Gatorade and even AT&T, which pleases me no end.
I posted about the shoot when John and his associates shot for Vertical Response at our place in January. John met the Superfreako people through We Make Movies, which is to the Hollywood film business what self-publishing is to the New York publishing industry.
Here's the video (that's John's arm and hand drawing):
Congratulations to everyone at Vertical Response and Superfreako. We've been enjoying feeling good about it. I'm proud of John. It's not the first award he's won, but it's sweet. And I know there will be more.
