Jeff Foster, who wrote The Green Screen Handbook, which devotes ten pages to the special effects of my period version of War of the Worlds, just won a Telly Award for one of his “Documercials”.

Jeff just returned from a very successful NAB to here the news of his winning the Telly.

"Visions Of America" - Joseph Sohm
Here's the link to the video.

Jeff was the producer/director/editor on the project and with the help of videographer, Michael Anderson (Extra Mile Films) they shot several hours of interviewing the book's author, Joe Sohm. Jeff spent about 2 weeks in editing to pare it down to under 10 minutes for the online video production. The award is a Bronze Telly (second placing) in the "Professional Infomercial" category.

Panasonic provided the P2 HD cameras and Reflecmedia provided the green screen setup. Editing was done in Adobe After Effects and Final Cut Pro. Music by Roger Kellaway, Lyrics by Alan and Marilyn Bergman

Good work Jeff!
