ACU received a national film honor for “Throughout the World,” a 2005 film about the international implications of the university’s mission statement, in the 27th annual Telly Awards competition.
The honor was the fourth Telly Award presented to the university in the past nine years, and it represents 2005’s best non-network, cable TV, film and video production work.
This year, the competition received more than 12,000 entries from 50 states and five continents.
ACU’s film, a 31-minute high definition production, was directed by Martin Perry, production manager and director of corporate production at Phillips Production Inc. in Irving, and produced by Ron Hadfield, director of Creative Services for the university.
Perry traveled to Antananarivo, Madagascar, to film much of the project, which is about the work of 2006 graduate Evans Lartey of Ghana, Chinese-born biology professor Dr. Junhui Bian and the Madagascar Presidential Scholars Program to recruit international students to ACU.
