UComm Wins Gold Nebraska Addy

UComm Wins Gold Nebraska Addy Client: Hixson-Lied College of Fine & Performing Arts | University of Nebraska Foundation

University Communications was recently awarded a Gold Addy at the 2015-16 American Advertising Awards-Nebraska for work completed for the Johnny Carson Center for Emerging Media Arts $20 million gift announcement. 

In November 2015 the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts and the University of Nebraska Foundation planned an event to announce a $20 million gift from the Carson Family Foundation to establish the Johnny Carson Center for Emerging Media Arts at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. As a focal point of the event, University Communications created a surreal video that featured UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman being interviewed by the late Johnny Carson on the set of The Tonight Show. The comedic four-minute video featured archive footage courtesy of the Carson Entertainment Group edited with present-day footage of the chancellor, allowing Johnny to take center stage of this big announcement from his foundation.
