The AAF-Buffalo held it's annual ADDY awards this past Friday night, March 3rd 2023 at Buffalo State Social Hall, and well, we had the time of our lives.
While we were participants in the show, we also helped bring it to life, producing the Prom-themed opening video as a parody of the iconic 'Take On Me' in the original 80s style. Aaaaaand because we couldn't help ourselves, we embraced some AI techniques we'd been experimenting with in studio to bring a trendy layer to our retro themed show. “We feel honored each year to work with the club and sponsoring agency to put the show reel together,” said SVP Beth Donovan.
The entire dPost team was in for quite a surprise as we took home an incredible 14 awards across 7 categories, which included: Music Video, Online Campaign, Cinematography, Editing, Sound, Illustration and Branded Content.
"We're absolutely thrilled with our wins last night," said Andy Donovan, President + Founder of dPost. "Our team has been working tirelessly to produce top-quality content across all of these categories, so it's incredibly rewarding to see our hard work pay off."

The ADDY nods are a testament to dPost's commitment to craft in all areas of creative content production, as we continue to expand our content capabilities.
"We're proud of the work we've done, but we're not taking these awards for granted," said Evan Pease, Director of Post Production. "We know that we have to keep pushing ourselves to stay ahead of the curve and deliver the best possible stuff for everyone we work with."

So a tip of the cap to the incredible extended crews + teams that help us pull these types of things off. We're consistently blown away by the talent + creativity of those around us right here Western New York, and it's a huge part of why we've planted our roots so firmly here in the 716.

And with all the #humblebrags out of the way, it's time to get right back to work, as dPost isn't content to rest on our laurels.
