Makematic-Produced Series Wins a Telly Award

How We Became America: The Untold History picked up a Silver Award in the 43rd annual Telly Awards.

The series was produced by Makematic in partnership with the American Battlefield Trust and the Driving Force Institute for Public Engagement. The Telly Awards honour excellence in video and television across all screens and last year attracted 12,000+ entries from top video content producers.

How We Became America: The UNTOLD History celebrates that not everything worth knowing exists inside the cover of our history textbooks. The still-growing series is associated with our larger Untold initiative.

“The American Battlefield Trust represents an important segment of our nation’s history that must be taught and learned by all who care about this nation. The Driving Force Institute is proud to partner with the Trust to help bring that story to students across the country as part of the Untold History series.”

DFI CEO Patrick Riccards.

The Untold Pitch Competition Winners

As you know, we’ve been running an Untold Pitch Competition with a group of students from California. If you don’t know about it, we suggest catching up on this blog to see all the entries and what the Pitch Competition is all about.

We had over 40 entries, to begin with, and we managed to cut it down to 12 shortlisted entries. It was tough bringing it down to 12, but even tougher to select 5 winners. In order to decide the winners, a 50/50 voting process was implemented. 50% of the vote was through social media. The other 50% was by the Pitch competition judges.

Thanks to this it made our jobs a whole lot easier to announce the winners.Read More
