Since 1985, the International Center of Photography has recognized outstanding achievements in photography with its prestigious Infinity Awards. The awards ceremony is also ICP’s primary fundraising benefit, with its revenues assisting the center's various programs.

Harbers Studios commissioned MediaStorm, on behalf of ICP, to create a short film about each of the recipients to screen at the awards ceremony and to later remain online. The films serve as an introduction of the recipients to the audience as well as a showcase of their work, highlighting the motivations for honoring them with Infinity Awards.

The Challenge
There is an incredible amount of thought and purpose that goes into each project by Adam and Oliver, and their interview was like an advanced class on the theology of photography. We had to ensure that the intention behind each project was clear to the audience, so they could fully appreciate the work that was presented on screen.

The Solution
We created the script so that each bridge between sections or themes had context that would inform the visuals, and the subject matter that they were discussing.

The Results
MediaStorm interviewed the recipients and gathered images to create stories about each of their careers. The resulting films serve individually as biographical glimpses into the recipients’ work and collectively as a portrait of some of the important contributors to photography today.
