Kyllea Kerg's short animation promotes local, sustainable agriculture.
A 2009 CIA graduate has won a regional Emmy® Award as motion graphics designer of a short video titled Growing Cleveland: Scaling up a Local Food System, promoting the sustainable, local agriculture movement.
Kyllea Kerg, an animator for Cleveland-based North Water Partners, said the project was close to her heart because she shops at farmer’s markets and an urban farm stand. “It was especially nice to be able to take home the Emmy for that,” she said. The video was produced for the organization Sustainable Cleveland.
Using colorful and richly textured collages, the playful two-and-a-half-minute video advocates for the availability of fresh grown food, “100 miles, farm to fork.”
Kerg, who has been with North Water for two years, started her career as a character animator but is now more involved in motion graphics and graphic design. “It’s still animation, just slightly different. And my background in character animation informs my work a lot,” she said.
Growing Cleveland was one of 91 winners of Emmy awards from the Lower Great Lakes Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, which covers Bloomington, Ft. Wayne, Indianapolis, and Muncie, Indiana; Akron, Canton, Cleveland, Lima, Mansfield, Toledo, and Youngstown, Ohio; and Erie, Pennsylvania.
