(add)ventures Wins Award for "Outstanding Commercial"
(add)ventures has received a Boston/New England Emmy Award for Outstanding Commercial for its production of “Knowledge Providence". The high-impact video was created for the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation (RIEDC) to help promote the Knowledge District, an area in the heart of Providence encompassing 19 acres of real estate where Route 195 used to cut through Providence.
"'Knowledge Providence' is a reflection of the tremendous talent, passion and potential of Rhode Island's capital city," said Steve Rosa, founder and CEO of (add)ventures. "This could not have been produced without the cooperation of so many companies and organizations in Providence."
Shot, produced and edited in 72 hours, “Knowledge Providence” depicts Cranston, Rhode Island, native and Broadway actor Dan Mills – walking by small and large businesses, restaurants, universities, hospitals, and iconic Providence destinations.
“It was exciting to see the creativity that (add)ventures has put forth to help attract businesses to Rhode Island by highlighting it as a key, competitive regional destination,” said Judy Chong, managing director of marketing, communications and evaluation at the RIEDC. "This has been a terrific marketing tool to help us build momentum and excitement for Providence and showcase the vitality and vibrancy of this walkable city."
