Member News –Mendoza Media LLC Receives Prestigious Communicator Award
August 7th, 2018

Mendoza Media LLC, a boutique video communications firm, is pleased to announce it has received an Award of Excellence, the highest honor, in The 24th Annual Communicator Awards, a leading international competition that recognizes the best in digital, mobile, audio and video communications. Earned in the category of “Digital Online Advertising and Marketing – Campaign B-to-C,” the award recognizes a series of 30-second videos Mendoza Media created for Ballem Surgical as a digital advertising campaign.

The Communicator Awards is overseen by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA) an invitation-only group of top-tier professionals from acclaimed media, communications, advertising, creative and marketing firms. The awards program recognizes distinction in creative work and judging is based on quality of craft.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by our peers for creative excellence in our work,” stated Teresa Mendoza, Managing Partner, Client Services at Mendoza Media LLC. “We always set a high bar for ourselves to deliver the most compelling videos that connect with and motivate each client’s target audience.”

The project was led by Stan Mendoza, Managing Partner, Creative and Production Services at Mendoza Media LLC, who oversaw all creative development, production and post-production phases. Stan noted, “We enjoyed partnering with fellow CIANJ member Jeff Kramer whose agency, Kramer Associates, was the advertising agency for the project.”

“These videos enabled us to tell the powerful stories of three patients whose lives were transformed by bariatric surgery. For each patient featured in the 30-second digital ads, we created a longer companion website video that shares their full stories,” Stan explained. “These patients faced emotional, physical and medical challenges, but with the help of Dr. Ballem each benefited from surgery in ways that go beyond the visually evident weight loss. We feel honored to have been part of capturing and sharing their stories.”

“Under Stan’s award-winning direction, each patient’s personal experiences unfold in rich and memorable details giving prospective patients compelling reasons to seek similar medical treatment at Ballem Surgical,” Teresa said.
