The Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau just sent word that locally based Terry McCullough Productions, Inc. scooped up a few Tellys at the annual awards shindig honoring commercial-makers. Among TMP's first-place prize-winners was a four-minute "travel and tourism" entry commissioned by the DC&VB titled "When I'm Big." It sounds amazing:
Description: The film takes a look at Dallas through the eyes of children who morph into local celebrities. The celebrities included Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, Dallas Symphony Orchestra Music Director Jaap Yan Zweden, Executive Chef and Partner of Abacus and Jasper's Restaurants Chef Kent Rathbun, International Supermodel Chandra North (Kim Dawson Agency), Dallas Stars (Hockey) Center Mike Modano, and PGA Tour Professional Chad Campbell.
