2021 Telly Awards
Levitate Media has picked up 8 Telly Awards, which honor excellence in video and television across all screens. The winning productions include both live-action and animated client work produced in 2020 for Linden Lab / Second Life, HID Global, and Cloudcover.
Here’s a sneak peek at the winning videos:
Linden Lab / Second Life: “Children of Creation”
Just before the world was turned upside down in early 2020, Levitate was awarded our most technical-commercial production to date by Linden Lab...promoting their virtual experience platform, Second Life.
“Producing technical content involving a cast and crew of 50+, stunt performers, VFX, and an extensive wardrobe design is a challenge on its own... adding a pandemic into the mix really took Producing to a whole new level,” said Evan Scott, VP of Production at Levitate Media. “Fortunately we had a wonderfully patient and supportive client in the team at Linden Lab.”
“The piece is special because it channels the true aspirational nature of Second Life, a place where you have the freedom to exist as you are or as you'd like to be,” remarked Commercial Director, Kanin Guntzleman.
“The Telly awards for the final piece says everything,” noted Darren Helton, Director of Marketing at Linden Lab. “The spot is both visually and acoustically stunning... Levitate's execution exceeded our expectations with a work of art that captures the essence of Second Life and the metaverse."

Additional Telly Awards for Levitate Media:
“Working with Stephen Cardot was a great experience. Getting to learn about his service offering was eye-opening to what could be possible for the internet that goes past our phones or computers.
Learning from Stephen was instrumental for my team and me properly convey a design direction that gets to the essence of what he’s offering at a high level.
Couldn’t have been successful without his expert knowledge and guidance to help me understand more of the complex aspects of his service in a plain and relatable way.”
