What do you call a mini-documentary about Acme Comedy's 20th anniversary put together by Minneapolis-based Black Iris Media with a production assist from Patrick Strait?

A Telly Award winning film, that's what.

Yesterday, Black Iris was notified that the film "Acme Comedy Company: Celebrating 20 Years in Comedy" has won a Silver Telly Award in the documentary/news feature category. According to Black Iris director Ryan Brennan, only about 15 percent of videos submitted for the national competition end up taking home a Bronze Statuette.

As Brennan explains, the Tellys "are more focused on online content than [non-online] broadcast, film, or video, though they do recognize excellence in any area."

Brennan said Black Iris is also submitting the video for a Regional Emmy Award. "I think we'll have a pretty good chance of taking home some hardware come September," he said.

Here's the award-winning video, which accompanied Strait's November City Pages cover feature, "Acme Comedy Co. celebrates 20 years."
