Legacy Multimedia Wins Crystal ICON Award
Last week Isabelle and I won our very first award. It is the Crystal ICON award and it was awarded to us by the Houston Chapter of the International Society of Event Planners.
We won the award for a video piece we did for the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft on the artwork of Cindy Hickok, a local fiber artist and the Center’s 2007 Texas Master Series honoree.
When a Texas artist rises above the competition, the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft honors that artist with the title of Master. Being distinguished as a Master craftsman is an enormous honor. We were commissioned by the HCCC to create a video presentation that both honored Cindy and described her work as well as promoted the Center and it’s relationship to the art community in Texas. It included a section on the history of the Texas Master Series, an interview with board members on why artist Cindy Hickok was chosen as well as a six minute profile on Cindy. There was also a digital catalog of the pieces that were displayed in the on-going show with information on each piece such as dimensions, materials, and what inspired Cindy to create each piece. The show ran through June 17th, 2007 at the Center and our piece looped continuously throughout the exhibit and was also available for purchase in the Center’s gift shop.
The video was an excellent example of the kind of work we do for businesses and corporations. It was pretty exciting to hear our name being announced at the 300+ attended gala/awards ceremony. Bill White, the mayor of Houston was there as well as other notables. I was so proud to go up and accept this award and am sitting here admiring it in my office while I write this piece.
So many great things have been happening for us lately. We’ve gotten some great press and now this award. It’s so nice to have our work being acknowledged and further strengthens my commitment to capturing memories and making great video!
Finally, we created a new page on our website that shows our recent News. Interestingly enough, I see that we’re in the process of creating our own company history.
