4VS WINS THREE (3) VIDEO AWARDS
Four Village Studio was the winner of three program awards at the 2013 “Alliance for Community Media, Northeast Regional Video Festival”. The studio garnered one 1st Place, one 2nd Place and one 3rd Place award in a variety of competitive categories.
Host/producers Walter Gosden, James Green and Larry Davidson won 1st Place in the General Talk Show category for an episode of “The Antique Road Test”. The program was highlighted with a drive around town in Mr. Gosden’s 1931 Franklin. “I was truly shocked and elated when told that our show won the top award” said the life-long antique automobile enthusiast, “but I know it would not have been possible without the dedicated and professional crew at Four Village Studio.”
The studio won a 2nd Place award in the Sports Programming category for “Inspiring Stories”. The episode chronicled the path of Kareem Anthony Rosser, an inner-city youth who has developed into a national rising star in the United States Polo Association. “It has been inspirational for me to have the opportunity to share such life-affirming stories though our program” said host/producer Bill Corbett, Jr., “and I share the honor of receiving this award with the entire studio staff of volunteers”.
A 3rd Place award was won by host/producer Larry Davidson in the Documentary Profile category. "Davidson & Co."examined the rich history of The Long Island Motor Parkway with historian Howard Kroplick. “Having such an enthusiastic expert like Howard as a guest, makes my work on the show very easy" Mr. Davidson said, "and I am always extremely appreciative of our talented production staff."
The award-winners were acknowledged at a ceremony held in Methuen, Massachusetts on April 13, 2013. The annual regional festival accepts program entries from community television producers throughout New England and New York State. This was the 13th year that Four Village Studio submitted entries to the festival where over 500 programs compete for the top honors. 4VS has collected 38 awards, in a wide variety of categories, since first entering the regional competition.
