Los Angeles, California – June 11, 2015 – The Telly Awards has named Will Roegge + Company as the winner of two Silver awards in the 35th Annual Telly Awards for their pieces titled BBI: A New Mountain to Climb and The Porsche from the Winter of 53. With nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.
BBI: A New Mountain to Climb
For Betim Berisha, years of hard work and determination paid off when he was able to start his own shop – BBI Autosport. In 2014 BBI Autosport took on the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb with driver Jeff Zwart. The film documents BBI’s 2014 effort at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb with seven time PPIHC Champion Jeff Zwart. Zwart approached BBI Autosport to build his dream Porsche for the hill climb. www.youtube.com/watch?v=TY7hwTvl53E

The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Silver Telly, our highest honor. Approximately 25% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Will Roegge + Company’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
“We couldn’t be more happy to win two Telly Awards this year! BBI: A New Mountain Climb is a great story and to have it win in the “documentary category” validates it. We want to thank BBI Autosport and Betim Berisha for giving us the opportunity to tell their story. The second award is in the Online Video Automotive category for “The Porsche from the Winter of 53” – which is a honor considering that the project was created by two people over the course of two days with limited resources. Thanks to Jeff Zwart for the opportunity and for always supporting us.”

Client: Petrolicious/Mercedes Benz
Role: Director of Photography

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Stirling Moss’ victory at the 1955 Mille Miglia race Mercedes Benz commissioned Petrolicious to make a film on the legendary driver and his 722 300 SLR. Thanks to both for hiring me to Direct Photography on the film project.

Mazda – Monster Miatas

Client: Mazda/Zoom Zoom Magazine
Role: Director/Director of Photography/Editor
Distribution: USA/Canada/UK

Flyin’ Miata of Palisade, Colorado builds some of the wildest MX-5s out. They take the great handling Mazda MX-5 Miata platform and add more power. Sometimes they take all of the components of the MX-5 and add them to exoskeleton car like the Exocet or the Catfish. Mazda wanted to capture some of the modified Miatas that Flyin Miata builds – so they hired us to film them in action.



Final Finished Frame compared to Storyboard on RMR RZRAPTOR

Rhys Millen Racing approached me to direct/direct photography on a short film



The RZRAPTOR is revealed driving over a crest. Using our DJI s1000 octocopter – we were able to do a converging reveal shot.


Tracking along side the RZRAPTOR through a rough whoops section of off road trail.


Ripping through the frame with a nice dirt and gravel trail.


One of the key features of the RZRAPTOR kit is that it allows for dual 5 gallon gas can storage, tool kit, and a spare tire.


Without scouting the location in advance, we found that the descend shot was a lot more dynamic than the climb at this specific spot.


Thanks to Rhys Millen Racing and Joshua Herron for operating camera/helicopter gimbal on this project.
