Manitoba Rocks the Signature Awards

Posted on

It may be "spring"  but curling is on the brain...

The City Winnipeg creative team behind the Manitoba Music Rocks 2012 “Curling Tips Series” videos picked up a 2013 Signature Award in the Digital Campaign category on May 9. 

The five short videos were created by the BT Winnipeg team to promote the 2012 Manitoba Music Rocks Charity Curling Bonspiel, which Manitoba Music and Manitoba Film & Music put  on annually in support of the Unison Benevolent Fund. Some of Manitoba’s best-known musician curlers feature in the video, including John K. Samson, Comeback Kid’s Jeremy Hiebert, DJ extraordinaire Mama Cutsworth, and acoustic pop troubadour JP Hoe, as well as Manitoba Music's Executive Director Sara Stasiuk and Manitoba Film & Music’s CEO & Film Commissioner Carole Vivier.

Congratulations and many thanks to Jenna Khan, who brought the idea together, writer Dwight Iwan, director Kevin McQuade, as well as John Titley and Matt Wiebe. Thanks also to the video stars, who all took time out of their busy schedules to help support the Unison Fund.

For the Manitoba Rocks 2013, BT Winnipeg teamed up with indie pop act Indicator Indicator to produce a music video of a brand new original song about curling. Shot primarily at the historic Granite Curling Club, the video also features curling co-stars JP Hoe and Oh My Darling’s Vanessa Kuzina.
