Sports Video of the Year

Since our last post in the beginning of February much has happened -- obviously since it's been four months. But the most recent noteworthy event has to do with the subject of our last post on Feb 9th, the 2009 Football Highlight Video. As you know, our work with the University of Oregon Athletic department over the past few years has produced over twenty highlight videos, but our work this year was recognized as exceptional and nominated by the Athletic's Video Dpt for a College Sports Media Award. The 2009 Football Highlight Video was nominated in the Collegiate 1 Category for Special Feature. The awards were announced at the College Sports Video Summit (sponsored by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics - NACDA and the Sports Video Group - SVG) on June 8th and our team was awarded first place. Jayson was in Atlanta to accept the award for the team - and rumor has it, his speech was short and sweet. Shortly after the win for Special Feature, the award for Best Video Overall was announced...and our video took top honor again, winning over entries from national commercial television networks CBS and ESPN. Yes, we're proud. Very proud. I can't show you a photo of the trophies yet cause they're sending them in the mail, they're a bit to pokey to take on an airplane. If you haven't seen the video yet, scroll down to the previous post or watch it on vimeo here Updateing!
