June 21, 2023

Brandon’s creative and production teams, in partnership with Geneverse, documented Geneverse’s initiative to provide generators to those impacted by Hurricane Ian.

Brandon, the most creatively awarded marketing agency in the Southeast, has been awarded an EMMY for Short Form Content at the 49th Annual Southeast EMMY Awards. This prestigious accolade celebrates excellence in television and video programming.

Geneverse hired Brandon to produce the award-winning video and accompanying content as a part of the effort to document their Hurricane Ian Relief Efforts. The work was a combined effort of Brandon’s in-house creative and production team, including Stephen Childress, Ben Cantrell, David Thompson, and Geneverse’s Buck Buchanan and Rachel Stotts. The video earned an EMMY in Short Form Content. Through its creative storytelling, Brandon’s in-house teams documented Geneverse’s humanitarian efforts by donating solar-powered generators to people in southwest Florida affected by Hurricane Ian. The video showcases the real impact of Geneverse’s generators in providing vital power during natural disasters.

“At Brandon, we strive to produce powerful creative and video work that helps garner attention and results for our clients,” said Stephen Childress, Chief Creative Officer at Brandon. “This recognition is a testament to the passion and talent of our team members.
