For all those who haven’t watched the film about the advantages of the mobile road sensor MARWIS yet, it’s now time the latest: A few days ago, two international awards went to the creators of the MARWIS film. They originate from the two most important festivals of the independent and short film industry. Thus, the filmmakers from NCP Film, whom Lufft again gave its trust, have continued with their success of the last two years, in which their productions for the sensor manufacturer were awarded with seven international film prizes in total.
With the MARWIS product film published in March 2015, NCP Film once again convinced international film juries. It became known on May 11, 2016 the latest, when the World Media Festival in Hamburg took place and the winner trophies changed hands. For the third time in a row, a Lufft production from NCP Film was amongst the winners there. The jury honored “MARWIS” with the highest prize level: the intermedia-globe Gold Award.
Almost in parallel, a WorldFest Houston Platinum Remi award in the category “Advertising/ Promotional” went to NCP for the same project. This represents the most valuable prize as well.
Lufft has collaborated with the filmmakers of NCP Film for two years now. The first joint project was about a new handheld instrument series. It was rewarded with an intermedia-globe Gold in Hamburg and a Platinum Remi Award in Houston. The second production has dealt with the Lufft I-BOX, a device allowing different climate sensors to be integrated into a measuring network and taking over different functions.
'It‘s always exciting to assist NCP Film in the planning, shooting and the editing of footage. It’s amazing, how much attention to detail and appropriated product know-how they put into a film production. With this studio, we found the right partner in terms of films and look forward to the next common project. It's time to say thank you for the commitment to all those who were involved in the MARWIS film,' sums up Lufft Marketing Manager Tobias Weil.
Worldfest Houston and WorldMediaFestival Hamburg
The history of the WorldFest Houston makes impressive reading. Founded in 1961, it‘s the oldest Festival for indie, short and advertising films. Also it‘s the third oldest film festival throughout North America. Here, even famous stars such as George Lucas, Ridley Scott, and Steven Spielberg hold their trophies into the spotlight already. With more than 4,500 international contributions from countries around the globe, the WorldFest Houston is not only one of the oldest, but also one of the world's largest film festivals. The public event attracts around 30,550 film authors and interested parties to Texas’ Space City every year.
The WorldMediaFestival in Hamburg was founded by intermedia® in 2000. Since then, they‘ve acknowledged films, television, web, web-TV and print productions on a yearly basis. Intermedia has existed since 1965 and is an international operating consultancy and networking company that provides media and marketing solutions as well as strategic communications services. Target groups consist of companies, associations, governmental and non-commercial organizations that strive for an optimal targeting, as well as an exchange of ideas. This year, 384 companies from 43 countries applied for the coveted film awards. Out of these, 14 received an intermedia-globe Grand Prix, 4 special awards, 92 got an intermedia-globe Gold Prix and 87 were awarded with an intermedia-globe Silver throughout all categories.
