The Canadian New Media Awards (CNMA) honoured marblemedia producer and partner Matt Hornburg last night with the award for Producer of the Year.
Hornburg’s work on Shorts in Motion: The Art of Seduction and www.thisisemilyyeung.com were two of the projects that garnered the award, which was handed out at the annual CNMA gala held at the Carlu in Toronto.
“These awards are really significant for us because they truly recognize the burgeoning field of new media and cross platform storytelling, and of course that truly is the focus of our work,” said marblemedia Partner/Executive Producer Matt Hornburg. “Our industry is a highly collaborative one and so naturally this recognition is equally shared with my business partner Mark Bishop and our team.”
The independent production company has been nominated for the Canadian New Media Awards several times in recent years. Last year, marblemedia Director of Technology James Eberhardt was honoured with the CNMA for Programmer of the Year for his work on www.thisisdanielcook.com and www.burnttoastopera.com.
It was also announced last week that Hornburg and marblemedia Partner/Executive Producer Mark Bishop will be the recipients of the Banff World Television Festival’s 2007 Lions Gate/Maple Pictures Innovative Producer of the Year, awarded June 11, 2007.
