Partners In EXCELLENCE Video Program Wins "Platinum Best Of Show, 1997" Award

December 1, 1997 -- Cleveland, OH: Aurora Awards, a national competition honoring excellence in the film and video industries named "Taking Pictures Further," a video training program developed for Eastman Kodak's Digital and Applied Imaging Group, its "Platinum Best Of Show, 1997" award winner.

"We are honored to have been named one of the Platinum Award winners for the Aurora Awards, " stated Dave Brock, president of Partners In EXCELLENCE. 

"This program represented the best in collaboration between our client, Eastman Kodak, and our production partners, Chuck Chubbuck of C-Squared Communications and Karl Wilkens of Wilkens Associates,"   Brock added, "Without the collective talents of all involved, we would not have been able to produce a video training program of this quality."

The program was designed toStatue01.CPT (2478625 bytes) introduce both consumers and dealers to concepts and applications of digital photography.  It sought to stimulate people's imaginations and creativity in thinking about how they might incorporate digital photography into their lives.  Several real life scenarios were used to introduce concepts and stimulate the imagination.  Scenarios included an artist using digital imaging as a means of stimulating his creativity and extending media available to create new works; a real estate agent using a digital camera to aid in presenting homes and ideas to clients; and a skating club using digital imaging and the Internet to communicate to families and friends at home and around the world.  The National Inventors Hall of Fame in Akron, Ohio was used as a backdrop for the video and Gina St. John of CNET Central served as the program's host.

Kodak used this program as one of the training elements for its dealer partners.  It helped dealer sales people understand basic applications and some of the underlying technology supporting digital photography.   Using these concepts, they were able to communicate more clearly the benefits of digital photography to their customers.
