2012 Canadian Cinema Editors Awards by Deluxe

This is my second article for this magazine sorry it is a big job getting all this together and took longer than I thought it would, put it on the back burner and forgot about it, also thought I had finished it. So here it is:



                         2012 CANADIAN CINEMA EDITORS
                                    AWARDS BY DELUXE
                                                             By Anthony Nadeau


Brian Atkyson and Canadian Cinema Editors President Paul Winestock, C.C.E

Preparations for the 2nd Annual Canadian Cinema Editor
(C.C.E.) Awards began in October of 2011. The event returned
to the Capital Event Theatre in Toronto on May 17, 2012.
President Paul Winestock, C.C.E., and Vice President Paul Day,
C.C.E., had a meeting with the organizing committee to better
plan this year’s awards. “First lesson was to start preparations
earlier. In our first year, the awards came up quite last minute
as an idea, and so we only had four months to execute the whole
thing,” recalled Winestock.

With the amount of time there was to prepare for the awards
night, they were determined to not incur any debt this time
around. They had sent a package to possible sponsors to help
with the awards show with the hope they could find the help they
needed. Winestock explained, “While the sponsors who were
there the first year were very excited to return, we certainly
heard little but crickets from potential sponsors.”

They hired a PR person right after the submissions were sent
out resulting in 140 submissions in eight separate categories.
Paul Day mentioned, “I think having a PR person on board
helped us gain some much needed credibility for the Awards and
the organization. Announcements were hitting the Canadian
news wire services and a bit of buzz goes a long way. We had a
wonderful two-page spread in CinemaEditor magazine, which
generated attention and, again, much need credibility.”
When the juries began to return their decisions, their
committee co-chair Mark Sanders had heard rumblings
that Deluxe was interested in coming on board as a much
more significant sponsor.

They saw C.C.E. as an increasingly important center of activity for post-production in Toronto and Vancouver, and had found the awards night the first year to be well produced enough to be deserving of greater attention and funding. This was an exciting development ... that would require more time to pursue. Given the hectic work schedules for everyone involved, everything at C.C.E. takes longer than in other institutions. So as much as they wanted to nail down this potential new direction, it took several weeks and a couple of meetings with Deluxe for C.C.E and Deluxe to agree to a major sponsorship. The awards would be named “2012 Canadian
Cinema Editors Awards by deluxe.” As a result, a fantastic
opportunity opened up for C.C.E., allowing them to expand the
awards night this year, but especially next year.

With only two weeks before the awards, all sorts of elements
had to be addressed: The program booklet had to be redesigned
with the new name, new logo placements and, due to additions
of other new sponsors, the booklet was sent to the printer
24 hours before the awards show! The photo board had to
be quickly rejigged with Deluxe’s new place, and new sponsors.
And the PR rep, Diane Foy of Skylar Entertainment, was
kept busy sending out press releases announcing this major
sponsorship and awards naming.

Regardless of all the stress that went with it, it was a banner
year! Some 212 people attended the 2nd annual awards show. At
almost 200 members, in just five years, the C.C.E. has reached
a potential never thought possible in such a short period of time.
It is and has been a lot of work but members of the industry,
sponsors, critics, etc., realize that creating something from
nothing doesn't happen overnight. But what has materialized is
a wonderful thing. The Canadian Cinema Editors is a real thing
now and will continue to grow and be incredible for all involved.
In closing, Winestock had this to say, “In the end, we did
succeed overwhelmingly. The event was a huge success and people
are excited for the 3rd Annual C.C.E. Awards by deluxe.”
