UPVA members stand out at WEVA EXPO 2009

UPVA members were busy at last month’s WEVA expo in Orlando, Florida. WEVA’s Creative Excellence Awards were held the first night of the Expo, and for the first time ever UPVA swept the Post-Ceremony Production Category!

Here’s how they were handed out:
Gold Award—Pointe Digital, Williamson wedding
Silver Award—David Perry Films, Kulisch wedding
Bronze Award—Giant Brothers Films, Seguin wedding
Denver Riddle from HD Cinematic Films (who presented a few months back) received a finalist award in the Love Story category and David Perry Films picked up another Finalist Award in the Wedding Demo Production category. David also shows he has great editing chops, as he won WEVA’s Battle of the Videographers – Editing Styles!

Along with these great accomplishments , Mike Nelson of Remember When Films was honored with the Bob Lebar Vision award. This award recognizes WEVA members who have demonstrated innovative and unique methods that have been instrumental in advancing our industry to a higher level. David Perry studied hard and became the newest Merited Professional Videographer (MPV)—only the second in Utah, and 17th among WEVA members. The MPV represents the accumulation of training, experience and knowledge as a videographer.

We congratulate these UPVA members on their accomplishments and recognition!
