People's Television, a video production company founded by Nicholas Bruckman '06 (new media), produced an animated spot for the United Nations that played yesterday for all of the delegates at the UN General Assembly 2013. The short film addresses the success and challenges of the Millennium Development Goals.
People's Television makes video content for organizations ranging from corporations to non-profits as well as independent films. Their first feature, the 2006 documentary film La Americana, debuted at the New York Latino Film Festival, winning Best Documentary. A narrative film, Valley of Saints, was their second feature and won the Audience Award and the Alfred B. Sloan Film Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012. It has since been acquired for worldwide distribution by 108 Media/Paladin Film and will premiere theatrically across North America this fall.
