Giving Thanks for the Wins
With Thanksgiving upon us, it seems appropriate to show appreciation for our latest achievement here at Jpixx. Last Thursday, the Phoebus Film Club Series honored us with the “Best in Show” title for our film “Blackwind.” The music video first gained recognition as an entry to the Genero.tv Music Video Competition, where the artist Patrick Watson selected us as finalists. This time, we came home with the gold. Contestants from all across Hampton Roads entered their work for submissions, but only 7 projects were selected to be shown at the evening of local film. Jpixx was honored to have all three of its submissions selected for viewing, including “In Captivity” and “The Alcoholic.” The other participants included Brett Lewis with his film “Operation Smile”; Chip Johnson with “Tandem”; FiftyOneFifteenProductions with “Fatal Games”; and Tyler Rhodes with “Evolution.” At the end of the screenings, audience members cast their votes as the directors eagerly waited to see who would win best short. The second place winner was announced leaving a hush as we waited to hear who would walk away as the
champion of the world night’s winner!
Upon winning for “Blackwind,” Jon gave a lovely acceptance speech and received a gleaming trophy along with a gift certificate for two at a local Hampton restaurant. #winning
Of course, there’s more thanks to be given. First, we’re thankful for family.
And extended-extended family — our clients and fans that drive us to do our best each and every day.
