Elfcu’s YouTube Video Produced with Pete the Planner Scores Three Bronze Statuettes in 34th Annual Telly Awards

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (February 28, 2013) — The Telly Awards has named Elfcu and Pete the Planner as three-time Bronze winners in the 34th Annual Telly Awards for their piece titled “No One Leaves Their Money at the Office Door.” Vinnie Manganello directed the production. Greg McGuirk of Bennett Innovations  developed the score.

With nearly 11,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor:

  • Bronze Award for Non-Broadcast Corporate Image
  • Bronze Award for Non-Broadcast Direct Marketing
  • Bronze Award for Non-Broadcast Health and Wellness

The Telly Awards honors the finest film and video productions, groundbreaking web commercials, and outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs. The Telly’s mission is to strengthen the visual arts community by inspiring, promoting, and supporting creativity.

“No One Leaves Their Money at the Office Door” tells the story of a typical workplace with characters who might as well be your own coworkers. In just three minutes, the YouTube based video introduces you to 9 scenarios, covering the gamut of money challenges typical Americans face daily, even while at work.  One person is divorcing; another is behind on her mortgage; while another can’t afford gas for her drive home. The story culminates with a woman who learns that her husband has just lost his job. The ultimate message to the viewer is “You are not alone.”

The 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.

“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Elfcu and Pete the Planner’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
