STUDIO W TRAILER WINS NEW YORK FESTIVALS' BRONZE MEDAL

 HOUSTON, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Studio W's trailer for the feature film "Behind the Mask" was awarded a third-place Bronze Medal at the New York Festivals' Jan. 15 awards competition, placing just behind Hollywood giants Columbia Pictures' teaser for "Bram Stoker's Dracula" and Walt Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" trailer.
 Trailers are 2- to 10-minute clips of feature films used to announce coming attractions and lure audiences to their release. Teasers are trailers lasting under a minute. Studio W served as post-production facility for the "Behind the Mask" feature film as well as its trailer. David Andis of Studio W produced, directed and edited the trailer along with Warren Chaney, the film's director.
 "This award shows that quality work does not have to be produced in New York or California to gain recognition," said Rick Christie, manager of Studio W and executive producer for the "Behind the Mask" trailer. "We made the trailer for one-half what it would have cost on the East or West Coast, and all of the talent came from the Houston area."
 The New York Festivals, a 35-year-old international competition, honors excellence in communications media by producers, distributors, and local/network television outlets. Studio W was the only facility outside of California to win an award in the trailer category. It won out over finalists Columbia Pictures for "A River Runs Through It" and "Dracula" trailers, and Walt Disney Studios' trailer for "Deceived."

In addition to feature film work, Studio W specializes in advertising, public affairs programming, corporate video and non-profit productions.
