Location3 and productionpartner LIGHTGROUP were honored with a Bronze Telly Award for “Local Search Traffic,” a digital videofeaturing innovative clickable technology.With nearly 11,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, the 32nd annual Telly Awards event wasvery competitive.

Additionally,the production of “Local Search Traffic” marked the first integration of this clickable technology with theBrightcove Express online video platform.“The innovation of this technology is apparent in the fact that the Telly judging panel was confused about oursubmission. They were used to getting DVDs and the fact that our submission only included a link hosted onBrightcove was a first,” said John Evans, vice president of business development for LIGHTGROUP.“Local Search Traffic” was a true team effort. Video Manager Nathan Evans wrote and directed the piece;Director Erik Whaley wrote the original score; and many other Location3 staff and family members helped withproduction and filled in as extras. . “Local Search Traffic” also received a 2011 Silver Key Award from theColorado Chapter of the Business Marketing Association (BMA), a national organization that unitesprofessionals who specialize in B2B marketing and communications.Nathan Evans reflected that, “Writing and directing for this technology is a unique challenge.
