PRLog (Press Release) - Mar. 11, 2008 - Steven Fischer, the documentary filmmaker known for making "art film(s) trapped inside a commercial" was awarded three statuettes at the 29th Annual Telly Awards this month.

Francis Scott Key: Legacy of a Life in Service, a patriotic, high-definition study on the pious life of the Star-Spangled Banner author, features the voice talents of actor Bruce Jacobson and Key interpreter Alan Gephardt. It won in the History/Biography category.

Belvoir, a satisfying 350-year journey through the estate inhabited by some of Maryland’s most notable aristocracy (including the Rosses, the Hammonds and the Dorseys), won in the Documentary category.  Historian Jan Orazem appeared as host. The executive producer was Jeff Antkowiak, founding owner of the film’s production company, ADG Creative in Columbia, Md. The visual effects were produced by Adam Bedard. The digital artist was Flynn Wolfe. Both films were commissioned by Rockbridge Academy, a classical and Christian school in Maryland.

Fischer’s beautifully photographed Civil War docu-drama, Now & Forever Yours: Letters to an Old Soldier won for Cinematography. The film stars Virginia native Katie Tschida and Winston Shearin in the true story of a covert romance between a northern officer and a southern belle. Northern Virginia Community College, one of the largest community college systems in the United States, subsidized the film.

The Telly Awards were established in 1978 and have become one of the most sought after awards by television production and broadcast leaders internationally. Last year, the Telly Awards received over 14,000 entries from five continents. The Telly statuette is design by the same firm that makes the Oscar® and the Emmy® Awards.

To date, Fischer, 35, has won the award eight times for writing, producing, directing, and cinematography.

Fischer’s versatile career in entertainment includes the Steve & Bluey cartoon series, an experimental documentary on celebrated photographer Carl Clark, and a poetic foreign language film called Silence of Falling Leaves honoring Polish POW's murdered in the Katyn Forest Massacre, nominated for an Emmy® Award in 2001.

Fischer recently became the inaugural subject for a new on-line interview series from CINE called The CINE Profile Series.  The interview can be read and heard at http://www.cine.org/newsletter/newsletter.php
