Two Tellys for local video company

Harrisonburg-based DIGICO is now the proud owner of two 2009 Telly Awards.
DIGICO won a silver Telly for a 60-second kiosk video created for Rosetta Stone, the leading language-learning software company in the world, titled “Best Gift.” The video depicts a family using Rosetta Stone software for the first time, and ends with branding animation created specifically for the video. 

A commercial for Staunton-based Augusta Eye Associates won a bronze Telly for use of animation in a commercial. Created by DIGICO design director Jeff Dobrow, the introduction and ending motion design incorporates the Augusta Eye logo and visually plays on a very recognizable piece of medical equipment. “The animation really sets Augusta Eye apart in branding, and quickly communicates what they do and who they are,” said Ryan Berry, DIGICO partner/producer.

The Telly Awards honor the best in local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions.
