IRVINE, CALIF. — As part of the 34th annual Telly Awards, Gannett Fleming has received a bronze Telly for its public relations video, “Lynwood Springs.” Produced by the firm’s Multimedia Specialist Arturo Tejada and directed by Vice President and Environmental Manager Leo Rebele, “Lynwood Springs” tells the story of how Gannett Fleming is helping transform a California community plagued by significant environmental contamination.
“Lynwood Springs” discusses contamination emanating from a gas station, dry cleaner, and self-storage facility in Lynwood, Calif., and its potential health risk to the surrounding community. The video details Gannett Fleming’s placement of two remediation systems into operation, both of which are designed to clean up free-phase gasoline dispersed within a shallow groundwater aquifer. The new remediation systems are expected to extract more than 3,600 gallons of gasoline from groundwater at the site during the next six months.
Gannett Fleming’s multimedia group is involved in video production initiatives that assist public and private clients with real estate development, litigation, and community relations. The bronze Telly for “Lynwood Springs” is Tejada’s second Telly Award. He received the silver Telly in 2009 for his outstanding short-form documentary, “Montecito.”
The Telly Awards honor the best film and video productions, groundbreaking web commercials, and outstanding local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs. More than 13,000 entries were received from some of the finest advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable companies, interactive agencies, and other corporations.
