Like A Photon Creative wins international awards for work with Sesame Street
CEA is excited to announce our client, Queensland children’s production company LIKE A PHOTON CREATIVE, has received a Gold and a Silver Davey Award for their numbers and letters segment, the ‘1 – 10 Hoedown’, commissioned by Sesame Street USA for their 45th season.
The ‘1 – 10 Hoedown’, which aired in the USA and Australia in February 2015 was created exclusively for Sesame Street, after the company was invited to pitch for the iconic children’s series. Featuring animated farm animals dancing to a heel diggin’ hoedown, the piece has won the Gold Award for Film and Video – Children’s Audience and a Silver Award for Film and Video – Animation in the 2015 awards.
“To be recognised in this way is fantastic,” says Managing Director Kristen Souvlis. “We’re a small company, founded in 2013 and we’re punching above our weight. That’s what the Davey Awards are all about – the Davids taking on the Goliaths of creative excellence. We’re happy to be one of the Davids.”
The Davey Awards honours the best in Web, Design, Video, Advertising, Mobile and Social from small agencies worldwide and is sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, an invitation only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, advertising and marketing firms, including Disney, Publicis, Microsoft and Yahoo!.
“We are absolutely thrilled that companies of this calibre have recognised our work. Paul Gillett of Flux Animation Australia and Ack Kinmonth of Ack Kinmonth Composer were invaluable members of the team. Now, not only are we the only female Australian team and the third Australian company to ever work with Sesame Street USA, we are also only one of two Australians who received a Gold Award in the Davey Awards this year, out of any category.” Kristen Souvlis, Managing Director.
Like A Photon Creative would also like to thank Screen Queensland, which assisted with the production of the ‘1 – 10 Hoedown’.
