Cannes Awards Shines Spotlight on Hand Drawn Animated Film by Richter Studios at 2017 Festival

Chicago-Based Animation Studio Now a Three-Time Winner at Exclusive Award Ceremony

CANNES, France, Oct. 3, 2017 — (PRNewswire) — The Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards held its annual festival in the French Riviera resort town this past Thursday and presented Chicago animation studio Richter Studios with the Silver Dolphin Trophy in the Corporate Videos category. Known internationally as a very competitive event, there were only 174 winners out of 917 entries from over 40 countries. Richter Studios CEO Jeremy Richter shared his thoughts after accepting the trophy on behalf of his creative team during the Awards Gala Dinner.

Richter Studios CEO Jeremy Richter onstage with the two Silver Dolphin trophies his company won at the 2017 Cannes Corporate Media and TV Awards Festival. Over 40 countries competed and there were only 174 winners out of 917 entries.

"Cannes is a wonderful city known for its red carpets and movie stars. To be here and win for the second year in a row at such a prestigious international festival is a remarkable achievement for the creative team at Richter Studios," Richter said. "We began as an animation studio over twenty years ago and to receive this award alongside some the world's most celebrated brands is an incredible feeling."

"We didn't just create a standard corporate video for SPR Consulting. We had a shared creative vision in that we both wanted this piece to be unique and exceptional. Having the custom hand drawn animation interact with the subject matter delivered not only a more visually engaging piece but also translated into some very powerful messaging."

The win represents the third trophy Richter Studios has received from the Cannes Awards, which annually honors the world's finest corporate films, online media and TV productions. The company also won a Silver Dolphin trophy for series entry it created for British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park. The two wins this year are in addition to a previous award Richter Studios received in 2016 for another film it had created for BISC, Lincoln Park.

"In the era of digital transformation, technology is a means to delivering an elegant human experience," said Rob Figliulo, CEO of SPR Consulting. "Richter Studios' film illustrates a fascinating story of our work with one of our clients, showing the power of transformative technology that affects our everyday life."
