Chicago Producers selected for Communicator Video Award

May 8, 2018

CA logo The International Academy of Visual Arts selected Chicago Producers to receive a 2012 Communicator Award. The Award of Distinction for Video Production was awarded to Chicago Producers for our work on the Jobs for Youth charity video.

About the Video

Jobs for Youth Chicago came to Chicago Producers with a tight budget and an even tighter time-frame.  They tasked our video team with creating a video that would be played at a charity event for former Illinois Governor James Thompson.  We had just under two weeks to shoot video at 2 different locations over 3 days and edit the interviews and broll along with still image, soundtrack and professional voiceover.  Chicago Producers once again teamed up with professional voiceover talent Marty Peterson.  "Marty has been our go to gal for professional voiceovers.  Her voice is perfect for our needs and suits the mood.  We have teamed up with Marty on several video productions and the quality, professionalism and timeliness is unmatched." – Producer, Bill Vala.  Jobs for Youth Chicago was very pleased with the final video and it was a success at the event.  Click here to view the video
