 – February 22, 2019



 – February 22, 2019 – IMS’ Brand Film was recognized by Pensacola’s American Advertising Awards (ADDYs) this week for awards in both gold and silver. In late 2018, IMS selected Vivid Bridge Studios, a strategic video and photography production company headquartered in Northwest Florida, to visualize IMS’ culture and brand story.

Vivid Bridge submitted the film, along with other materials, to be considered for this year’s ADDYs. Founded in 1959 ADDY’s is missioned to recognize distinguished creative talent in the art of advertising. The Pensacola ADDY submissions are open to freelancers, agencies, corporate communications, members, and non-members from the Northwest Florida region.

“The decision was made to submit IMS’ brand film because of the cinematic consistency, intentional craftsmanship, and its unique disposition compared to other video production work," commented Benjamin Murphy, Director/Production Manager of Vivid Bridge Studios. “It was so inspiring to hear the same message across the entire workplace. When you have that kind of drive and consistency, it makes telling the story so much easier.”

The judges, consisting of accomplished advertising creative professionals, follow a scoring process. They evaluate all creative dimensions of the work to measure its quality and from that determine the winners. If selected as a district winner, an opportunity arises for consideration at the national level by the American Advertising Awards.

The IMS Brand Film was awarded one Gold and Silver plaque. In the ADDYs, Gold signifies the highest level of excellence and Silver denotes worthy recognition.

“We are delighted to see our film garner this type of recognition," remarked Teresa Barber, Director of Marketing & Strategic Communications for IMS Consulting & Expert Services. “We seek out contractors and partners who apply the same level of diligence and seek the high standards of quality as we do for our own clients. Vivid Bridge created a compelling and engaging video to introduce key parts of our brand story to some special audiences, and their film ultimately captured the special culture at IMS that drives our performance, impeccable client service, and growth.”

The film presents the growth of IMS as a testament to the team’s dedication to its clients and service, also evidenced through nine consecutive placements on Inc. 5000 list, and recent designations by New York Law Journal as Best Corporate Investigations Provider, Texas Lawyer as Best National Forensic Accounting Firm, and National Law Review as “Go-To Thought Leader”.
