BAYSIDE ENTERTAINMENT SELECTED A WINNER IN THE 34th ANNUAL TELLY AWARDS.
San Francisco, CA – June 17, 2013
The Telly Awards has named San Francisco video production company, Bayside Entertainment, as a Silver and Bronze winner in the 34th Annual Telly Awards for their project titled Journeys for Good: Cambodia. With nearly 11,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor. Journeys for Good won three awards, including a Bronze in both the documentary and editing category and a coveted Silver People’s Choice Award, voted on by the internet community.
Emmy-winning production team, Steve and Joanie Wynn, produced the series of videos for Journeys for Good, their site which celebrates voluntourism with original blog and video content. They also have a public television series currently in development.
Journeys for Good: Cambodia is a series of web videos which follows a family volunteer trip with non-profit Globe Aware. The Wynn’s traveled with their son, Ryan and participated in a number of hands on volunteer projects, including building wheelchairs for local landmine and polio victims.
Co-founder and writer/producer Joanie Wynn remarked, “It is especially rewarding to receive such an honor for our passion project. We believe in the transformative power of volunteer travel and our videos help to tell these amazing stories — hopefully to encourage others to experience their own voluntour adventure.”
In addition to Journeys for Good, Bayside Entertainment also produces a wide range of corporate video for clients like Lucasfilm, Sony and Boy Scouts of America. A full-service production company based in Marin County, Bayside specializes in video for sales, marketing and the web. The company is owned and operated by Steve Wynn, an Emmy and Telly award-winning cameraman and editor and Joanie Wynn, an Emmy nominated and Telly winning writer/producer. Bayside Entertainment has served clients in the SF Bay Area, across the country and around the world for over 20 years.
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Bayside Entertainment’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
About the Telly Awards
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
For its 34th season, The Telly Awards once again joined forces with YouTube to give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People’s Telly Awards. In addition to recognition from the Silver Telly Council, the judging panel that selects the Telly Awards winners, the Internet community helps decide the People’s Telly Awards winners.
A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit.
