‘Zombie Boyfriend’ Turns Heads at Telly Awards

NEW YORK, June 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The winners of the 32nd Annual Telly Awards have been announced. “Zombie Boyfriend,” a music video produced by Brooklyn Girl Productions and directed by Jenine Mayring for indie artist Emii, won a Silver Telly Award, their highest honor.

Award-winning director Jenine Mayring commented, “It’s especially exciting to collaborate with a female recording artist to help convey their unique perspective visually. To have our music video be recognized by the Telly Awards is equally as exciting, and I am deeply honored to receive such a prestigious award.” The recent accolade marks the second Telly Award for multi-hyphenate Jenine Mayring. In 2008, she won a Bronze Telly Award for producing a regional television commercial entitled “Making Faces” for NORMS Restaurants, a chain based in Southern California.

A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past Winner of a Silver Telly and a member of the Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work; entries do not compete against each other – rather, entries are judged against a high standard of merit. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners of a Silver Telly, their highest honor. Other outstanding work is awarded a Bronze Telly.
