Dezeen's drone documentary Elevation wins two Lovie Awards

Elevation, Dezeen's documentary about how drones will transform cities, has received two accolades at the Lovie Awards 2018, which celebrates the best content on the internet.

The 18-minute film, which explores how drones could change how people travel, how goods are delivered, and how buildings look and are constructed, was honoured with a bronze award in the Technology Video category by the Lovie Awards judges.

The documentary also received a People's Lovie Award, which was decided by popular vote. So thank you to everyone who voted for it!

The Lovie Awards is a sister awards programme to the Webby Awards and celebrates the best online content produced by companies based in Europe.

Other winners this year include media brands BBC News, the Guardian, Vice UK, Channel 4 and The Economist, as well as technology companies Google UK, Spotify and WeTransfer. British rapper Stormzy was named Person of the Year.

The animated movie Dezeen produced for Emeco with Jean and Nico Jullien was also shortlisted for a Lovie Award in the Branded Animation category.

Elevation is Dezeen's first foray into longer-form video. It was co-directed by Dezeen's editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs and head of video Oliver Manzi, produced by Studio director Ben Hobson, lead producer Calum Lindsay and content producer Sebastian Jordahn, with camera and motion graphics by Miguel Santa Clara.

The movie also features an exclusive soundtrack by Donato Dozzy, while the sound design and mix is by Mikkel H. Eriksen of Instrument Studio.
