Wins Gold in Web Series: Corporate Image
Wins Silver in Branded Content: Health & Wellness

Narrative Media is proud to announce that we were awarded two Telly’s at the 42nd Annual Telly Awards international competition based out of New York City. Narrative Media received the coveted Gold Award in the Web Series: Corporate Image category. Our video production agency was honored for the 11-episode oral history series about Covid-19 that we produced for Cooper University Healthcare. Here’s a look at Episode 1:

We also won the Silver Award in the Branded Content: Health & Wellness category for our stroke rehab video about a Flyers legend that we produced for Bancroft Neuro Rehab. Take a peek at the work below:

“In the face of a year like no other, the visual storytelling community has continued to defy the limitations of our new world. Achievements have been both societal, such as embracing social media platforms to raise awareness about injustices and promote solidarity for movements, as well as geographical, like developing fully remote pipelines for dispersed teams,” says Telly Awards Executive Director Sabrina Dridje. “This year’s submissions doubled down on what we already know about the industry. Creativity cannot be stopped. Collaboration will always prevail. New ideas and stories will always find a way to break through to an audience.”

The Telly Awards is an international annual awards ceremony showcasing the best work created within television and across video, for all screens. Over 12000 entries were submitted to the 42nd Annual Awards Ceremony.

“Helping our clients achieve their creative vision is one of the most rewarding parts of what we do. That being said, having our work recognized and honored by our peers isn’t far behind. I want to thank our clients for trusting us with their vision but just as importantly I want to thank our crew for bringing their all to every project we embark on, we could absolutely not do this without each and every one of them.”

-Andrew Poag, President, Narrative Media

The Rowan Opportunity Program TV Spot

This spot is a great example of what you can do with a solid b-roll library. We produced this ad completely from existing footage, meaning we didn't have to shoot anything new and didn't have to incur any additional expenses. Furthermore, we were able to turn it around on a short deadline. We wrote the script, secured the VoiceOver talent, created the spot and published it in just 4 days. This workflow efficiency is just one of the many benefits that a long term partnership with our team can bring.

USciences: Covid-19 Day of Giving

University of the Sciences asked us to produce this video to help raise money for their student emergency fund during Covid 19. Given the current quarantine we needed to produce the spot remotely. We recorded Emily's prepared remarks using a video conference app and screen recording software. We then filmed her video being played back on a laptop in various work from home environments. We've written up a pretty extensive behind the scenes blog post on the subject. You can view it here. USciences had a goal of raising $30,000 for their emergency fund, with the help of this video they were able to raise $80,000.
