Real Digital Pro-ductions (RDP), a local video marketing company, received five Addy Awards at the American Advertising Awards in Asheville.
Entering videos completed with two local Brevard nonprofits, Rise & Shine/Neighbors in Ministry and The Transylvania Economic Alliance, RDP took home two silver awards, two gold awards and the most prestigious honor of the night, Best of Show, for its work with Rise & Shine.
"The opportunity to create videos that support our community is one of the most rewarding aspects of the work we do," said Heath Cowart, RDP co-owner.
RDP worked with Rise & Shine/Neighbors in Ministry, a local nonprofit dedicated to providing children with tools for learning and to promote racial justice and equality of opportunity, to create a video to be used as a fundraising tool. Rise & Shine's year-round after-school programs help prepare and encourage students to excel in an academic environment and in life, and this video will help them raise money so they can continue to grow their program and better serve the community.
"The passion that we all feel for the program and the children is conveyed beautifully and compellingly through our video," said Debbie Klingender, a Rise & Shine volunteer. "If we had no other way to tell people about Rise & Shine, this powerful piece could stand alone and do that job superbly."
Over the course of 2018, RDP also created a 31 video series campaign for the Transylvania Economic Alliance. These videos featured 10 different manufacturing businesses in the county to highlight the growing advanced manufacturing sector in the community.
"Advanced man-ufacturing is growing in Transylvania County, and we hope this video series will help continue to bring more manufacturing jobs to our community," said Josh Hallingse, the Alliance's executive director.
The videos that received a gold award will continue on to the regional competition.
