Although earning praise for their work is nothing new for the DELTA Video Communication Services team, John Gordon has secured the first-ever Golden Reel award from Media Communications Association – International (MCA-I) Media Festival.

Gordon, broadcast & emerging media manager, received MCA-I’s highest honor in the editing category for the work he and his crew did for The Ice Cream Makers, a video shot in coordination with NC State’s Department of Food Bioprocessing and Nutrition Sciences.

The MCA-I Media Festival annually awards films for their creativity and advancement in technical applications. The list of winners was released March 18, while MCA-I boasted a 25 percent increase in entries this year. All entries are reviewed by panels of industry professionals from across the country.

In addition to top honors, DELTA Video Communication Services garnered two Silver Reel and five Bronze Reel awards. Michael Castro and Bert French served as production assistants on several of the award-winning projects.
