St. Paul, Minnesota – 4/29/14 – The Telly Awards has named Wondervision Productions as a Bronze winner in the 35th Annual Telly Awards for their local TV Spot titled 'Fiat 500L - More Than Your Ego Can Handle'. The categories they were awarded in are Local TV - Automotive, and Local TV - Cinematography. With nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.
Co-owners of Wondervision Productions, Kevin Horn & Aaron Courteau created the piece for the local Minneapolis Fiat dealership with the hope of changing the status quo for not only local TV, but for car commercials in general. "As a gear head and Fiat owner myself, it was one of the most fun projects I have had the pleasure of working on", says Courteau. Kevin Horn goes on to note that "one of the greatest creative challenges we encountered was making St. Paul look and feel like Italy, and I think we conquered that."
Wondervision's Fiat commercial aired locally on FOX 9 and KARE 11 for a number of months in the Fall of 2013, and screened during before the movies in most AMC Theaters across Minnesota. The Fiat dealership received so much positive feedback after the commercial aired that they decided to hire Wondervision to produce another one. Wondervision completed production on the latest Fiat spot last weekend and plan on releasing it mid-May.
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. Wondervision Productions' accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
