Brunet-Garcia Documentary Honored by Telly Awards

Brunet-Garcia Documentary Honored by Telly Awards

The 33rd Annual Telly Awards recently honored Joash Brunet, writer/producer at Brunet-García Advertising, for the agency’s documentary Immunization: A Dose of Reality. The Tellys honor the finest film and video productions and excellence in local, regional and national commercials.

Brunet, who had 15 years of experience as a television producer before joining Brunet-García, wrote the script, providing insight, empathy and an unbiased journalistic expression to the increasingly controversial social issue of immunization. In addition, Brunet oversaw production and post-production duties for the hour-long program.

“The success of this documentary hinged on the expertise and passion provided by the medical experts and families who participated in this project,” says Brunet. “We feel this Telly Award honors their commitment and openness in this collaborative effort.”

The last several weeks my mind has been marinated by
the voices of Nikki Giovanni, Al Letson, the passionate
and at times controversial words of Malcolm X.
Not the Malcolm that called Whites, blue or brown eyed
devils, but the Malcolm that came back from the pilgrimage
to Mecca (the Hajj) believed in the ability of men to be
brothers. To respect each other and be at peace in this
world. Everyone deserves a second chance to change
the world in a positive direction.
