Crane, Mo. – June 12, 2016 – Defender Films has been awarded the 2016 Bronze Telly in the Non-Broadcast Productions—Documentary category for its film Inhuman: The Next and Final Phase of Man is Here. The 37th Annual Telly Awards attracted over 13,000 video entries from around the world.
Inhuman was also awarded a Silver Telly for production excellence, an honor given to fewer than ten percent of the entries.
Inhuman, the first release from Defender Films, is an investigative documentary from the internationally acclaimed team at SkyWatchTV. Inhuman travels the globe, interviewing internationally renowned experts, to unveil how breakthroughs in science, technology, and philosophy—including cybernetics, bioengineering, nanotechnology, machine intelligence, and synthetic biology—are poised to create mind-boggling changes to everything we know about Homo sapiens.
A fast-growing cultural movement known as Transhumanism intends to use these powerful new fields of science and technology to redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring, and even perhaps—as Professor Joel Garreau, Lincoln Professor of Law, claims—our immortal souls.
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Inhuman was judged alongside the best work of respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments from around the world.
A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents.
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Defender Films’ accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
Defender Films CEO Tom Horn said, “We are absolutely delighted to be recognized by the Telly Awards for our first production. While we don’t make films to win trophies, the awards are a testimony to the hard work and creativity of our team at Defender Films and SkyWatchTV.”
