Pro Image Video was presented with a Telly Award at this year’s competition for their entry “Did You Know”. The video, produced in conjunction with Clovis West High School, delivers a message of tolerance and understanding of individual differences. Developed as part of Clovis West’s Human Relations Week activities, students were not only the actors they also wrote the script.

“This video is a great example of the power and value of a ‘peer to peer’ message. The students in the video spoke from the heart, and the impact is still resounding”, stated Scott Dille, Activities Director at Clovis West High School. “It has since been shown at the District Office and at other administrative meetings”, said Dille. The end result has been a steady stream of requests for copies from other schools. “The interest in our project has been very exciting and I’m thrilled to see the video receive such high industry recognition.”

Founded in 1980, the Telly awards were created to showcase and give recognition to outstanding non-network and cable TV commercials. Since that time, the program has been expanded to include film and video productions. Pro Image Video now joins an impressive list of prior Telly recipients including Walt Disney, Sony Pictures, National Geographic, United Way, Good Will Industries, PBS, HGTV, Johns Hopkins Medical Video and many more.

Founded in 1998 by Tracy Santee and Beau Wade, Pro Image Video is a full service production company providing corporate video, television and multi-media production services to businesses and organizations throughout California.
