GALILEO PRODUCTIONS, LLC SELECTED AS WINNER IN THE 35th ANNUAL TELLY AWARDS
Randolph, NJ – March 29th, 2015 – The Telly Awards has named GALILEO PRODUCTIONS, LLC as a Bronze winner in the 35th Annual Telly Awards for their piece titled IMPACT: Jewish Boxers in America. With nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.
IMPACT: Jewish Boxers in America tells the story of many great Jews in the sport of professional boxing during the early 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s as well as profiling some of the most current Jewish boxers that are arriving in this country and fulfilling the American Dream by making vast accomplishments in the sport of professional boxing. The 1/2 hour film also profiles the story of Ron Lipton, boxer and trainer, referee who experienced a tremendous amount of anti-semitism while working on the New York and New Jersey police departments during his day as a boxer and law enforcement agent.
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 35th 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. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Silver Telly, our highest honor. Approximately 25% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “GALILEO PRODUCTIONS, LLC accomplishments illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
Filmmaker, James Ford Nussbaum thanked GALILEO PRODUCTIONS, LLC and Fairleigh Dickinson University for the opportunity and mentioned the importance of this project in telling a part of Jewish history that many are not even aware of.
