(Edited press release)
The Foundation for Biomedical Research announced its feature film "Majestic" has won a Telly Award in the 30th Annual Telly Awards competition. Founded in 1978, the Telly Awards is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online film and video.
"Majestic, which stars prominent equine veterinarians Dr. Larry Bramlage of Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, and Dr. C. Wayne McIlwraith of Colorado State University, highlights revolutionary surgical procedures, gene therapies, and animal research developments that are extending the life expectancy of horses with osteoarthritis and other joint injuries. These same procedures are often transferred to humans with degenerative joint diseases.
“FBR is honored to receive the prestigious Telly Award,” said FBR president Frankie Trull. “Majestic is a groundbreaking film that demonstrates how animal research continues to yield new discoveries and treatments that result in longer, healthier lives for animals and humans. Majestic proves the importance of translational research and shows viewers how research with animals continues to contribute to saving both human and animal lives.”
Majestic was filmed and produced by FBR and is available for purchase, classroom use, and small group exhibition. Worldwide television rights are available. To learn more about Majestic or FBR, visit www.fbresearch.org.
