In 2014, SeeFood Media created a webseries with cookbook author Dorie Greenspan for Driscoll’s Berries. We are happy to report that we’ve won a Bronze Telly Award for the series and a Silver Telly Award for one of the individual videos! Check out the series, titled Desserts with Dorie, here; the video, “DIY Raspberry Tart,” is below.
The videos were produced here at SeeFood Media’s kitchen studios, based on interviews done with Dorie, which formed the backbone of many of the videos. This meant that Dorie could focus on having fun during shooting, rather than needing to follow a script. Our team worked with Driscoll's to choose everything from the props to Dorie’s wardrobe. Our director, Jamie Tiampo, placed Dorie and her stories as the centerpiece of each video. Her sunny personality and passion for baking shine through in the videos, and pair perfectly with Driscoll’s delicious berries! It was a delight working with Dorie and Driscoll’s, and seeing these videos gain recognition is an added bonus.
Dorie Greenspan is the author of eleven cookbooks, and has won six James Beard and IACP Awards. She has won IACP’s Cookbook of the Year Award twice, for Around My French Table and Desserts by Pierre Hermé.
Telly Awards are given to outstanding film and video productions every year. The Silver Telly is the highest award that a production can win, and is given to any deserving entry—that is to say, no entry is competing against any other, instead being judged only on its own merit. In years past, the Telly Awards have received more than 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents. Other category winners this year include videos by Coca Cola, Ford, Microsoft, and HP.
