Drywater Productions wins Telly Award in 2021 42nd Annual Telly Awards!

We’re proud to announce we won a Telly Award for our work on Community Action’s “Everyday Racism” video. A huge thank you to those who participated in the project and shared their personal stories.

Drywater Productions worked with Beth Tallon of Community Action to develop the concept and look and feel of the film. We filmed over a series of days capturing stories.

Everyday Racism was a collaborative video project with Drywater Productions and Community Action to collect stories of Racism from recent past to present, happening in our own community. From clashes with the KKK to being stopped and questioned while leaving work- racism is still very real.


“Accept that racism exists. Accept that it impacts people every single day. And then open your mouth and do something about it.” – Marc Perry, Executive Director at Community Action, Inc. of Rock and Walworth Counties
