Solid Light Named Telly Award Winner in Two Categories

Solid Light was named a Gold Telly Award winner in the Craft Non-Broadcast category for use of 3D animation in their recently debuted work The Falls of the Ohio. The 9-minute orientation film, featured at the Falls of the Interpretive Center in Clarksville, Indiana, takes viewers on an educational journey of the Falls of the Ohio region from the Devonian period through modern day. 

Solid Light was also awarded a Bronze Telly for The Essence of the Game, which conveys the excitement and history of the state’s favorite sport and can be seen at the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.

“We are very fortunate to have such gifted filmmakers working at Solid Light,” said Solid Light Executive Creative Director John Murphy. “The Falls of the Ohio realistically depicts key events in the history of the Falls, such as the teeming life of the Devonian Sea millions of years ago, through the magic of 3D animation by Immersive Media Specialist David Crites. By contrast, The Essence of the Game uses original production and archival footage woven together by Media Exhibit Producer Bryan Miller to convey the thrill and love of basketball in Kentucky yesterday and today. Both films are remarkable achievements, and we congratulate everyone who worked on them—especially David and Bryan.”

During the past 20 years, Solid Light has transformed audiences’ understanding and passion for museums, branded environments, educational institutions, and public spaces by telling stories in memorable, engaging ways. Notable projects include the American Civil War Museum in Richmond, Virginia; Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage in Nashville, Tennessee; Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale, Mississippi; the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience in Louisville, Kentucky; and the forthcoming Heaven Hill Distillery Visitors Center in Bardstown, Kentucky.
