NASHVILLE, Tennessee – July 7, 2008 – Two on-air broadcast promotional spots by Nashville Public Television (NPT) have won prestigious CINE Golden Eagle Awards. The two “Give the Gift of Membership” spots — “Accordion Player” and “Out of Sync” — were winners in the Promo Category, where they competed with entries from major broadcast and cable networks.
The two spots were part of a promotional campaign titled “Give the Gift of Membership” written, produced and directed by Hugh Brian O’Neill, NPT’s Director of Brand Management & Creative Services, filmed by Jim DeMarco and edited by Ed Jones. The campaign stars Nashville musician Michael Webb, whose character’s life is given renewed meaning after receiving the gift of NPT membership. “Out of Sync,” which also stars Nashville sound engineer Danny Polan, previously won a 2008 Mid-South Regional EMMY Award. Both spots can be viewed on the NPT Creative You Tube Channel at youtube.com/nptcreative.
