Olathe, KS, United States, 2012/09/26 - PlattForm Advertising received a 2012 Emmy Award in recognition of its pro-bono video for the Kansas City Autism Training Center (KcATC) - PlattFormAd.com.
PlattForm Advertising, a leading Internet marketing and enrollment solutions provider for the postsecondary education industry, received a 2012 Emmy Award in recognition of its pro-bono video for the Kansas City Autism Training Center (KcATC). This is the second Emmy the agency has won.
The mission of KcATC is to provide professional, research-based intervention, training and education for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders. After touring the facility and learning of the organization’s financial struggles, PlattForm produced the pro-bono video in hopes of helping KcATC continue its goal of preparing autistic children for school and, ultimately, fulfilled adult lives.
“To be able to use your skills as a video professional to help a local nonprofit organization such as KcATC provides a tremendous amount of personal satisfaction,” said Jason Kerschner, Director of Video Production at PlattForm and the editor/producer for the award-winning video. “To be able to win a second Emmy Award for PlattForm is the icing on the cake.”
The achievement was announced during the 36th Annual Mid-America Emmy® Awards on Sept. 22 at the Midland Theatre in Kansas City. Since its philanthropic group, Team Phil, formed in 2005, PlattForm has remained committed to giving back to the community. The agency received its first Emmy Award in 2009 for a pro-bono video produced for SAVE, Inc., housing for the socially and medically disadvantaged in Kansas City.
“I feel lucky to work for an organization that believes so strongly in philanthropic acts and one that can provide its employees the support and creative freedom needed to work on projects like this,” Kerschner said. “In my nearly 17 years in the video production and television business, I can say it's rare to find a company that believes so strongly in both.”
