Oak Ridge-based company recognized for video production

The Telly Awards has selected M&M Productions USA, a full-service event planning and production company, as a Bronze winner in the 35th Annual Telly Awards for its production of “The Stars of Texas DECA” promotional video. With nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this recognition establishes M&M Productions as an industry leader in video production.

The Stars of Texas DECA video features the story of five DECA alumni who credit their success to their experience in DECA. The video motivates Texas students to participate in the organization, which prepares high school and college students for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management.

“The original business plan for M&M Productions was borne out of my involvement with DECA in high school,” said Mike Brown, M&M Productions president and CEO. “Winning a Telly on this project highlighting success stories in Texas brings our story full circle.”

The Telly Awards, founded in 1979, represents the premier honors for local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs; video and film productions; and online commercials, video and films. Winners are selected worldwide from the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators and corporate video departments.

A prestigious judging panel of more than 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judge the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents.  The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work. Entries do not compete against each other; rather, entries are judged against a high standard of merit.

“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, executive director of the Telly Awards.  “M&M Production’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
