New York, NY – October 1, 2020– Extreme Reach (ER), the complete asset management solution for TV and video ads, today announced it has received multiple honors in two international award competitions, the dotCOMM Awards and the Videographer Awards. ER earned accolades for its ‘BEWARE THE AIR QUOTES!’ marketing video promoting AdBridge™, the company’s video-first creative asset management platform for the advertising industry, as well as for the company’s blog, which provides unique points of view on issues impacting the industry.
In the dotCOMM Awards, which honor excellence in web creativity and digital communication, ER’s awards in the Video and Content Marketing categories included:
Additionally, ER’s Blog featuring compelling content about the shifting terrain of linear and digital advertising was awarded Platinum for Blog Overall.
In the Videographer Awards, which recognizes outstanding achievement in video and digital production skills, ER’s awards in the Web Based Production/Video for the Web category included:
“Workflow challenges in advertising are incredibly common, but they’re not commonly discussed. Our goal for this campaign was to change that, bringing these issues to the forefront using humor to educate and persuade while also entertaining marketers,” said Melinda McLaughlin, CMO at Extreme Reach. “We are very proud to receive these honors and believe they’re a testament not only to the quality of the campaign, but also to the fact that accepting delivery delays and errors is, in itself, rather absurd.”
The video was written and created in partnership with comedy director Ben Weinstein, owner of production company Two Nineteen, and co-writer Cedric Giese. In an interview with shots.net, Weinstein and Giese share insights on the project and the approach they took in bringing the story to life.
