Friday Round-Up: Seahawks Win Award For Best 2018 Intro Video

The Seattle Seahawks’ game presentation team won a Golden Matrix Award for ‘Best Intro Video’ at the annual IDEA Conference.

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Friday, July 11 – about your Seattle Seahawks:

Golden Matrix Award: Best Intro Video

Every year the Information Display and Entertainment Association (IDEA) hosts an industry-wide conference to bring together their members and discuss topics of relevance to game presentation. Our team, specifically our game presentation department, is considered an active member of the association because of their day-to-day management of all segments of game and event presentation on a given Seahawks gameday.

At this year's conference in San Diego, California, the Seahawks game presentation team took home some hardware, winning the Golden Matrix Award for 'Best Intro Video' in all of sports. Atop the deck of the USS Midway, the team's video was screened prior to winning the award. All IDEA members had a say when voting for the collection of Golden Matrix Awards.

Seahawks Assistant Director of Game Entertainment and Production Service Madeline Down was quoted, "It's an honor to be recognized by our peers for a Show Open Video. The video was inspired by the power of the noise 12s bring every gameday, making CenturyLink Field the most foreboding home field in the NFL. We are humbled by our fan's support every day and are excited to show this year's new concept at the home opener on September 8."

Down was dedicated to the production of the 2018 intro video, but she was not alone on the journey. Two other key staffers involved in the award-winning video were Seahawks lead video editor Chase Decker and video coordinator Joseph Lipsen. As Down mentioned in the above quote, keep an eye out this season for a new concept present in the 2019 intro video.
