Willie & Amy film wins
"Aloha Live: On the Road With Willie K & Amy Gilliom," the documentary record of the on-and-off-again duo's West Coast tour, has won one of the video industry's Telly Awards, selected by mainland judges in the 27th annual event.
Directed and filmed by Heather Giugni and written and edited by Lisa Altieri, it won in the cultural-documentary category.
"The Tellys give out lots of awards, but there are thousands of entries and we're judged by our peers, so it's quite an honor," said Altieri.
Last year, the competition received more than 12,000 entries from ad agencies, production companies, TV and cable stations, and corporations all over the world.
