LAI Video Wins 3 Peer Golds for Marketing + Motion

by James Loizou

The LAI Video nerds were honored to attend our fifth TIVA Peer Awards and even more honored to take away three gold awards. Hosted at the French Embassy, the Television, Internet and Video Association recognized some of DC’s best video work — anything from commercials and PSAs to marketing and internal communication.

We were tickled pink to receive a total of seven awards, with golds for our RISE Up and I Am IH career recruitment campaigns and use of motion graphics in the beautiful A Dream of Safety prologue.
