The Orrville grade has been awarded Gold Clio and Promax Silver
The Orrville High School graduate received two Industry Awards for editing and producing original content for HBO Max while working at WarnerMedia.
Shayne (Blum) Borenstein received a Gold Clio Award for Original Broadcast Content and a Silver Promax Award in the Backstage Campaign category. The awards were linked to her role on the Ridley Scott series, ‘Raised by Wolves’.
This sci-fi adventure tells the story of two Android devices whose mission is to raise human children on a mysterious planet. Borenstein’s work on the campaign focused on Scott’s creative process, especially his collaboration with designer Janty Yates. Animated comics were a distinctive part of the campaign, bringing Scott’s graphics to life. Scott is probably best known for his classic movies like Alien, Gladiator, and Black Hawk Down.
Clios are often referred to as the “Oscars of the Advertising Industry”. It is an international awards program to “honor the best in advertising, entertainment and communication design”. The Promax Awards is also a global competition to honor the best entertainment and marketing design.
After graduating from Orrville High School, Borenstein earned an undergraduate degree in radio and television production from Kent State University. He moved to Atlanta to work in the CNN newsroom, then moved on to editing the company’s entertainment side and producing projects for networks including TNT, TBS, Cartoon Network and HBO Max.
Borenstein was recently hired by NBCUniversal and is working on projects for the network’s Primetime group, including “The Blacklist” with James Spader and “Transplant,” a medical drama series. She lives in the Atlanta area with her husband Jason, a professor at Georgia Tech.
