New York, 6 March, 2014 – Singapore-based Beach House Pictures scores a haul of four medals at the prestigious New York Festivals, beating the trio of awards it achieved at the same ceremony last year.
“Kakadu”, a co-production with Sydney-based Northern Pictures, ABC TV, MDA and Cineflix Rights wins a Gold World Medal in the Nature & Wildlife category. While the BHP, 3net and CICC co-pro “Secrets of Shaolin with Jason Scott Lee” takes home the Silver World Medal for Sports & Recreation. The highly rated original production “Kids vs Film” on Discovery Kids bags a Bronze World Medal in the technical category of Editing and “Boomtown Asia – Japan” for Channel News Asia also scored a bronze in the Science & Technology category.
Finalist Certificates were awarded to the History Channel and CICC special “Lost City of Jinsha” under the History & Society section and “Revealed: DNA – The Next Wave”, a Discovery Channel hour-long program.
Creative Director of Beach House Pictures, Donovan Chan, says it’s thrilling to continue a run of wins at the New York Festival that began in 2012, but if the company is to remain competitive it has to stay focused.
“For 10 years, BHP has shown at various competitions that our programs are truly world-class and we are delighted that this year’s collection is no different. We believe in offering our key broadcast markets a variety of unique products – from natural history to kids programming – but what remains consistent is great storytelling with strong production values.”
