FCCE and Ziggo’s Entertainment Experience, which documents the process behind a user-generated movie made by director Paul Verhoeven, took the non-fiction prize at the International Digital Emmy awards in Cannes.
The Dutch-based team from FCCE and Ziggo followed the development and production of a film that utilized a team of 30,000 people, including screenwriters, actors, filmmakers and composers, who answered Verhoeven’s call to help him produce a new movie.
Entertainment Experience bested fellow nominees All Connected, from New Sock and Channel 10 in Uruguay; the UK’s The Great British Property Scandal from Tiger Aspect, The Project Factory, MySociety and Channel 4; and Singapore’s Supermodelme from Refinery Media, Tigergate and Mediacorp Channel 5.
Other International Digital Emmy winners included dirtgirlworld… dig it all in the Children & Young People category, while Guidestones won the Fiction category.
CCE’s CEO Rene Mioch and CCO Justus Verkerk were on hand to receive the trophy.
“With cutting-edge concepts and technology that pushes every frontier, these Emmy winners brilliantly demonstrate the wonderful versatility of multi-platform storytelling,” said Bruce L. Paisner, president and CEO of the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
