LEXINGTON PARK, Md. (Jan. 4, 2008)—Phocus Video Communications, a Lexington Park based multi-media production house, has been chosen as a winner of a bronze Telly Award for a program produced in support of the new Navy Standard Core Menu. This honor marks the eighth Telly award for the local company.
The annual Telly Award competition draws over 14,000 entries from all 50 states and 30 foreign countries. Entries are judged based on a high standard of creative excellence and submissions from the likes of HGTV, Christian Broadcasting Network, the Comedy Channel, and The History Channel are past competitors for the prestigious awards.
Fresh Ideas on Food was produced for the Naval Supply Systems Command to introduce the new standard menu being implemented across all 343 Navy galleys. The new core menu reduces the workload in the galley, increases the efficiency of Distance Support and contributes to healthier, happier sailors with nutritious flavorful meals.
This was an exciting project to produce," said David Taylor, owner of Phocus Video Communications. Our crew traveled to San Diego to shoot on board the USS Boxer and interview the CNSF Force Supply Officer, Capt. Harry Davis. The program combines that footage with interviews shot on board the USS Nitze in Norfolk as well as stock footage, graphics and animation to provide a product that not only met the high standards of the US Navy, but upheld the creative standard of excellence set by the Telly Awards.
Phocus Video Communications has been in business for over 20 years. They have been named to the Federal Governments Qualified Video Producers List.
