(Chicago, Illinois--November 20, 2012) Mode Project, a Chicago-based design and production studio, has won two Emmy awards from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, Chicago / Midwest Chapter. NATAS is the most widely recognized organization dedicated to the advancement of excellence and creative achievement in television and new media.
One Boy's Story, a PSA, won for Outstanding Achievement for Community/Public Service (PSAs) and Outstanding Crafts Achievement Off-Air - Graphics Arts/Animation/Art Direction/Set Design. The spot was created for the nonprofit organization, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), dedicated to providing volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children. The spot, blending live-action with 3D animation, tells the story of a young boy who was abandoned by his parents, but with the help of a CASA volunteer, was adopted into a loving family.
