COLUMBIA – Steve Twitchell Production of Columbia has earned a bronze Telly award for “Mission: Possible,” the 2003 staff report of the Missouri Baptist Convention (MBC).
Twitchell, who has worked with the MBC for more than 20 years, is from First Baptist Church, St. John, in St. Louis. His company began as an audio production studio in 1980. Video production was added in 1992. The company has won almost 100 awards for production excellence.
“The Telly is one of the most prestigious of industrial video/film awards,” Twitchell said. “Very few people in central Missouri have ever won even one Telly, but Steve Twitchell Production has now won five of them. This award for industrial media production excellence is so similar to an Academy Award that the figurines are even made by the same company.”
Founded in 1978, the Telly Awards honor outstanding local, regional and national television commercials and programs as well as the finest film and video non-broadcast productions.
In addition to the bronze Telly won for its MBC video, Steve Twitchell Production won a silver Telly for work with Inter-State Studio’s Yearbook Wizard. The silver Telly is the highest honor of the awards.
