A member of the team at Luckie & Co. received a prestigious industry award for his work in videography last week.

John Hunter, a senior editor and director of photography in the agency’s Birmingham office, earned one of the annual Ten Awards presented by the American Advertising Federation (AAF) of Birmingham. Hunter was given the Production Award in recognition of craftsmanship and creative excellence in bringing “the brilliant and sometimes grandiose-ideas of creative teams” to life.

Hunter has been with Luckie & Co. for 10 years and prior to joining the firm was in freelance film production. As director of photography, he manages in-house production and video editing across all media channels for Luckie. His work touches a wide range of clients including the U.S. Civil Rights Trail, Little Debbie, Williamsburg Tourism, and several projects on behalf of Regions Bank.

“John is an incredible talent,” said Brad White, creative director for Luckie. “As a videographer, he can shoot anything from simple interviews to broadcast-level commercials to incredibly cinematic images that take your breath away. We are proud to see him recognized by the industry for the brilliant work he does every day.”
