Pimp My Trophy Cabinet
Screentime has won two further awards for its recent work, this time at The 2009 International Business Awards. We were awarded Stevies in both the Employee Communication and Writing categories for Repco’s “RAP ‘Pimp My Store’”.
The International Business Awards are the only global, all-encompassing business awards program honoring great performances in business. Nicknamed the Stevie® for the Greek word “crowned,” the awards were presented to winners at a gala dinner on Monday, September 14 in the St. Regis Hotel in New York City. Recipients of International Stevie Award trophies were selected from more than 1,700 entries received from organizations and individuals in more than 30 countries. Organizations all over the world are eligible to compete in The International Business Awards, and can enter in any of more than 40 categories from Multinational Company of the Year and Best New Product of the Year to Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year and Executive of the Year.
Screentime’s Executive Producer- Corporate Television, Steve King, says that this award is recognition not only for Screentime’s production and creative skills, but also for the various technicians- from Production Assistant to Sound Engineer- that it engaged to work on the project. “These are craftspeople for whom it’s not “just a corporate video” but another opportunity tell a story and make the client look as good as possible. In this case we had the opportunity to get more creative than usual, so we have Repco to thank for trusting in our recommended approach”.
It’s the fifth time in three award festivals so far that “Pimp My Store” has been international recognised. It has already received 3 Bronze Telly Awards and a 2008 DV Award. Repco’s NZ Operations Manager Bruce McMillan was immediately taken with the concept and rapt with the end result. “When I saw the final video for the first time I said don’t change a thing Steve, you’ve captured exactly what we wanted, and it exceeded my expectations, it really did.” And it’s not the first time Screentime as garnered awards for it’s work for Repco, a relationship going back to 1987, but this project is one that King is especially proud of, a sentiment echoed by McMillan. “I think it’s going to be a piece of Repco history for many years to come” he says.
