Independent Media Productions Awarded a Videographer Award for ‘Dark Energy’ Video Production
AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Independent Media Productions, Inc., an Austin video production company, has won a Videographer Award of Excellence. The winning project was an educational video, produced for the University of Texas at Austin’s Texas Cosmology Center, titled “Dark Energy: Speeding Up the Universe.” The Videographer Awards is an international awards competition that recognizes outstanding achievement in video productions.
The goal of the video, one in a series, is to share the passion of understanding the Universe with a broad audience. Dark energy is a complex theory to explain, and the video brings the subject to life through interviews with prominent astronomers and professors, real photos from space, and artistic renderings and animations of space concepts. Independent Media Productions collaborated on the video production with StarDate and the Texas Cosmology Center.
The Texas Cosmology Center seeks to answer fundamental questions about the Universe. However, it is often difficult for the general public to comprehend these complex topics. “That is why we have teamed up with StarDate to create videos, podcasts, and radio programs, so that we can use these materials to pass along the developments in our quest for understanding the Universe,” said Dr. Eiichiro Komatsu, Director of the Texas Cosmology Center. “The outcome has been fantastic. The videos have been used in classes, public lectures, and fund raising. I am thrilled that one of the videos, Dark Energy, received the highest-level Videographer award.”
“It’s always great to work with bright, talented people, like those at Independent Media Productions,” said Damond Benningfield, StarDate producer. “They really helped put our interview subjects at ease, and Stacy Formby did a superb job of editing the piece to help tell the story. I think that viewers will have a much better understanding of the mysteries of dark energy thanks in large part to the efforts of Independent Media Productions.”
“We enjoyed helping the Texas Cosmology Center create content-rich tools to educate the public on our amazing Universe,” said Stacy Formby, Creative Director at Independent Media Productions.
