Palm Desert, CA, June 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cord Media Company, a full-service agency specializing in creative, media, integrated marketing and branding, has been honored with three Telly Awards for their video productions, announced Jonas Udcoff, CEO.

Cord Media was awarded a Telly in the film/video category for its nearly three minute promotional video of the opening of Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs. Entitled "86 Days," the piece follows Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs from construction to its star-studded grand opening.

"It's an honor to have Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs' video recognized at this national level with this award," said Nora Swire, Senior Director of Marketing for Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos. "This property does an excellent job of showcasing the brand and has quickly emerged as a hot spot in Southern California." 

The video debuted at a corporate conference and retreat held in Orlando, Florida for Hard Rock Hotel  & Casinos top management. The time-lapsed video showcased the 86-day construction period and property transformation, along with celebrity-filled, high-energy events that reflect the Hard Rock brand.   

"Momentum has been building for the City of Palm Springs and we are pleased to be at the center of this popular destination, as showcased in our now award-winning video," said Andy Carpiac, Owner, Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs.

Cord Media was also honored with two additional Telly Awards in the commercial category. Their work for Copley's Restaurant was recognized for its 30-second spot entitled "Be Our Guest" and Kenny Giannini Putters' "Balance of Winning," 30-second commercial airing in regional golf markets including Phoenix, Southern California and Florida.   

"Showcasing our clients is what we do best," said Udcoff. "Receiving these Telly Awards helps bring our clients additional exposure on a national level and we are proud of our video production team."
