When you hit play, watch a video clip or become captivated by a multi-minute piece, you hear the sounds in the scene and the words coming directly from those speaking. You see the setting and feel the emotion being conveyed. From images and sounds to captions and cuts, audiences receive an incredible amount of information in a short amount of time. Videos, as a very experiential medium, fully immerse the viewer in the story. 

As innovators adept at telling stories across a variety of platforms, Trilix and Trilix Studio are proud to say that our video production and editing set us apart, so much so that we and our clients received eight nominations for the 2023 Upper Midwest Regional Emmy Awards.

These nominations are for a variety of marketing videos and include collaborations with clients such as the Iowa Wild, NCAA Wrestling, Make-A-Wish® Iowa and more.

The Upper Midwest Regional Emmy Awards recognize many disciplines, including sports, documentaries, entertainment, commercials and more. The Emmy Awards focus on excellence in video and television; entrants are judged on a standard of excellence based on three main criteria: content, creativity and execution.

“No matter the industry or objective, our teams approach every video project with creativity,” said Brett Adams, Trilix president and chief marketing officer. “We’re lucky to work with clients who allow us to try new ideas, understand their audience and tell their organization’s story in a compelling new way. Having such a wide range of work nominated for an Emmy award is a true testament to the diversification and quality of the partners we get to work with.”
