Each year, the Telly Awards honor excellence in video and television across all screens by awarding special recognition to the best work created. With over 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents, Telly Award winners represent some of the most respected advertising agencies, television stations, production companies and publishers from around the world.
This year, Baltimore-based Tonal Vision’s short film, “Term Papers and Pandemics” was awarded the 2021 Silver Telly Winner in Social Video: Remote Production. Written and directed by Mya Montgomery with music composed by Kraig Greff “Term Papers and Pandemics“ is the story of a college senior navigating her last classes online during the Covid-19 lockdown while coping with anxiety when the virus hits close to home. The project was an incredible achievement remotely produced by Tonal Vision team members in different locations during the earliest days of the global crisis.
Producer/editor, Jacquie Greff is proud of the film’s impact and reflects on the challenging experience of producing such a complex project during the pandemic. “We got some really good performances and made a pretty creative film. In the end, solving the problems we encountered making the film taught us important lessons for the future as remote production became the norm during the later stages of the pandemic.”
For the 42nd Annual Telly Awards, creators brought high-caliber stories to screens during one of the most challenging years ever and this year’s entrants truly represented the most innovative stories being told across all screens. As a Telly Winner, Tonal Vision is honored to be the standard bearer of excellence in the industry.
