NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Frame Productions, Inc., a leading content development and production company, has been recognized in the 27th Annual Telly Awards for its production of "Selling VCAST Music," a 15-minute instructional video for Verizon Wireless.
"We are proud of our work and of the many productions we've done for Verizon Wireless," said Dan Zukowski of Frame Productions. "We appreciate the recognition from the Telly Awards as the leading awards organization for our industry."
Selected from among 12,000 entries, the show was produced and directed by Meredith Cruse and written by Dan Zukowski. Cruse, a Hollywood development executive and independent producer, and Zukowski, a journalist and marketing executive, are the co-founders and owners of Frame Productions, Inc.
Developed to launch the client's new music download service and help train retail and customer service employees, "Selling VCAST Music" features Elise Ivy ("The Handler," "Babysitting without a Net") as a record producer and host, supported by a cast of 15 as customers, sales representatives, and the band.
A creative 30-second tease takes viewers through a visual history of mobile music, from transistor radios to cell phones. The video then opens in a recording studio with the band tuning up as Ivy anchors the show, tossing it frequently to the cast in a Verizon Wireless retail store where typical customer interactions are carried out.
The video was shot in three days at two locations in Southern California with Sam Ameen ("Single Minded," "Zoe") as director of photography. Edited at Frame Production's in-house facility, "Selling VCAST Music" includes 2D and 3D graphics and animations. Stewart Sound, of Santa Ana, Calif., with Dave Myslek as engineer, completed an engaging sound design with SFX and music.
