Produced in collaboration with the Episcopal Church for a special forum on the global economic crisis with the archbishop of Canterbury at the church's 2009 General Convention, the winning videos present stories from Ghana and the Lakota Native American tribe in South Dakota. The videos are also part of a larger ongoing story-telling project produced by Trinity Wall Street that includes a variety of multimedia platforms depicting how people in the global Anglican Communion are working together for the kingdom of God.
"The CINE Golden Eagle award recognizes the quality of the cinematic storytelling that went into each of these videos," commented Linda Hanick, vice president for communications and marketing. "Trinity's TV and new media division finds great satisfaction and inspiration working closely with members of the Anglican Communion to uncover and portray compelling stories of people working together for a world of good. But it is also extremely rewarding to be recognized by industry peers."
The CINE Golden Eagle Awards include "God's Mission in the Economic Crisis: Ghana," featuring Dr. Stephen Dzisi, technical director of Nets for Life, discussing the life-saving benefits of nets in the prevention of malaria. "God's Mission in the Economic Crisis: Lakota" profiles Sarah Eagle Heart, program officer for the Episcopal Church's Native American/Indigenous Ministries, discussing poverty and faith in rural South Dakota. Dzisi and Eagle Heart also participated in the forum on alleviating and eradicating poverty, the videos providing insight into the local programs they oversee.
Awarded twice a year, the CINE Golden Eagle recognizes video productions that demonstrate excellence and innovation in content, writing, visuals, production techniques, camera work, sound elements, editing, and graphics. The production must also appropriately and effectively communicate to its intended audience the stated purpose of the project.
Trinity staff members recognized in the production of these videos include James Melchiorre, producer; Michael McGuinnes, director of photography; Anthony Indelicato, video editor; William Jarrett, supervising producer; and Linda Hanick, executive producer.
Anglican Communion Stories is a continuing series; currently there are 13 multimedia productions depicting stories from Uruguay, London, South Dakota, New Orleans, Ghana, Texas, Washington, Iowa, Florida, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Missouri, Sudan, New York and Los Angeles.
