Wayne French of INDUS Wins Telly Award for DoD Public Service Announcement

IndusCorporationWayne French, a multimedia production specialist at INDUS Corp., has won an award for his work on a public service announcement that paid tribute to the U.S. military and its contributions to the National Football League.

Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey handed the nearly 12-inch tall and nine-pound Telly Award to French during a ceremony held at the Pentagon Sept. 3, INDUS said Friday.

The video titled “Chairman, SEAC Honor Troops ahead of NFL Super Bowl XLVII” was an opportunity for Dempsey and his senior enlisted adviser to thank soldiers for their commitment to service and love of country.

Ted Milone, INDUS director for defense and information systems and Clarence Smith, IIMS project manager, joined government officials and senior military officers as well as French’s wife during the awarding ceremony.

INDUS says the Telly Award recognizes people who represent agencies, companies and organizations behind outstanding commercial, film and video productions as well as multimedia programs around the world.

French’s video was viewed in more than 175 nations and U.S. territories as well as U.S. Navy ships via seven satellites and through digital compression technology.
