Coalter Digital is proud to recognize our Sound Engineer Brad Czerkies, on his nomination and win of a National Silver ADDY Award in Sound Design.
Czerkies won for his work on a video for the Harris Corporation highlighting the effectiveness of a haptic robot used for explosive ordnance removal, and received the award at the National ADDY Awards gala held in San Diego on Saturday, June 4, 2011.
The ADDY Awards is a highly respected ad competition produced by the American Advertising Federation (AAF). Those competing for a National ADDY must first be winners at the local and state levels.
The video entitled “EOD Haptic Robot” earned seven local ADDY Awards, including Best of Show, and the Sound Design entry went on to win at the state and national levels.
“This is the first project where I was able to test all of the skills that I learned during my education at Full Sail,” said Czerkies. “God has blessed me with great talent and I’m glad to put it to good use and to be honored by my peers for this award.”
