“This honor places Visit Buffalo Niagara among an elite group of video producers from around the world,” said Patrick Kaler, VBN President and CEO. “We have invested heavily in producing video content that will entice the traveling public to visit our community and this award is an endorsement and validation of the quality of our productions. We’re thrilled with this recognition and genuinely pleased that our portrayal of Buffalo met with such a positive response from the Telly Awards judges.”
Each of Visit Buffalo Niagara’s winning videos were produced in collaboration with Paget Films, a Buffalo-based production company. This collaboration has resulted in many local and national awards over the years.
“Our team loves telling stories about cities, towns and neighborhoods, and particularly stories about our hometown of Buffalo,” said Paget Films President John Paget. “Our goal is to foster civic pride and spark the imagination and curiosity of potential visitors. We’re honored to learn the Telly Awards judges think we’re doing our job well.”
Additional assistance in the form of script writing and creative direction was contributed by Buffalo-based Pete Reiling/Words + Pictures.
