RED DEER– Unveil Studios, the award-winning film production studio owned by the Kooman brothers, took home two prizes at this year’s Crown Awards on Saturday, July 15.
Unveil took home Best Music Video for “Heal Me” along with the New Filmmakers Award.
The awards were handed out at a live ceremony that the Kooman brothers attended in Nashville, Tennessee at the annual International Christian Visual Media film and media conference.
“Heal Me” was filmed in London, Ontario and features three inspirational stories and soaring drone shots. The music video is the lead single from recording artist Elizabeth Smith’s new album Hope that was released in June 2018.
The brothers, who wrote and directed the Alberta-made film She Has A Name, were also recognized for excellence and promise in filmmaking with the New Filmmakers Award. The award is selected by film and media associates and includes a $1000 cash prize sponsored by the Kendrick Brothers whose most recent box office success War Room earned more than $70 million at the box office.
The Crown Awards recognize excellence for films and media in the faith and values segment of the film and media market. Since 1973, the awards have been presented at the ICVM film market conference. Last year She Has A Name received a Silver Crown Award for Best Drama.
Unveil Studios is currently in production on Dream, a documentary production that follows the amazing real stories of people pursuing their dreams, and has shot segments for the production in Tanzania and Mexico City with filming slated for Canada and the United States.
