Aberdeen digital media company wins double gold

Digital media production company SIGNAL2NOISE has won a Gold ‘REMI’ award, at the 53rd Annual WorldFest-Houston Film Festival. The international film festival received over 4,500 entries, with only a small number winning an award. Established more than 50 years ago, it is the oldest independent film and video festival in the world.

‘Mariner - A Digital Frontrunner’ was commissioned by Equinor to promote its commitment to innovation and digital technology.

The film was shot on location, in Aberdeen and offshore on the Mariner platform.

And there’s even more great news…

In the same week, they’ve won more awards as part of the ‘Wimbledon Rematch 1980’ team who secured a Gold award for ‘Creative Event of the Year’ and a Silver in the ‘Game Changer’ category at the prestigious Campaign Experience Awards, beating Airbnb and Google.

‘Wimbledon Rematch 1980’ was an immersive event that reproduced the legendary Wimbledon Final between Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe.

The show used a combination of actors, dancers, music and newsreel to recreate the experience of being at Wimbledon in the 1980’s.

The innovative event is the first time that the All England Lawn Tennis Club has lent its name to another event.

SIGNAL2NOISE created all of the video content and large-scale projections that were required to deliver a unique immersive experience.

These included producing an enormous vintage television set, a ‘living’ testcard, a colossal video game and a full-size tennis court that rotated, caught fire and froze over, reflecting the highs and lows of this epic match. This required a complex technical and rehearsal process to synchronise several high definition projectors, lighting, music and live performances.

SIGNAL2NOISE Creative Director Mark Turner said, “We are proud to have helped put together ‘Rematch’. This special event requires collaboration between many disciplines from the sports and theatre industries. We are delighted to have contributed to such a beautiful and ambitious production.”

These wins continue a winning streak for SIGNAL2NOISE this year who won four Gold and Platinum prizes at the Aurora Awards in February.

SIGNAL2NOISE Senior Producer Jamie Baikie said,“2020 has turned everyone’s plans upside down, but we believe things can and will get better. These awards provide a wonderful morale boost. Even though we can’t all work together physically we’ll keep striving to produce creative award-winning work”.
