GRUMPUSS WINS 1999 INTERCOM SPECIAL ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

INTERCOM, one of the most diverse and prestigeous media communications events in the world, recognizes the technical and creative energy behind sponsored and independent video productions, and highlights the importance of media arts in communications. 

Each year they assemble panels of distinguished media professionals to judge their competitive categories.  To insure fully qualified appraisals, they select judges familiar with the subject matter and intended audience of each entry.

All aspects of a production's technical execution are evaluated for professionalism, creativity and effectiveness in achieving its goals.

Entries are judged against others in the same category, but judges may recommend that no award be given in a category if entries do not meet the award criteria.  In the event of a tie, duplicate awards may be presented.


UNPRECEDENTED WIN FOR STORYTELLER'S EPIC RHYME


Travis Edward Pike's GRUMPUSS, the World Premiere Benefit Performance, won this SILVER PLAQUE for Special Achievement Writing in the 1999 International Communications Film & Video Competition in Chicago, Illinois.  It is the only award presented in this category this year and last year, no writing award was presented.  To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time in the 35 year history of the Chicago Film Festival, perhaps in the entire history of motion pictures and video productions, that an epic narrative rhyme has been so honored.
