Filmmaker Award


Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Central and South Texas Receives $5,000 Donation

Fair Lawn, NJ, Dec 6, 2007 – Maxell Corporation of America recognized Randall Dark, CEO of Randall Dark Productions, last week for his work on the comedy motion picture, “Closing Escrow.” As part of the recognition for his achievements, Dark, who recently relocated from Los Angeles, California to Austin, Texas, identified the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Central and South Texas charity to receive $5,000 from Maxell in his honor.

As a high definition technology pioneer, Dark received a glass trophy featuring the Maxell “Blow Away” icon, unlimited Maxell HD product for use on his next project, and money to donate to a charity of his choice. Dark’s support for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in his new residence of Texas continues his partnership with charities that benefit children. As a result of Dark’s donation, a child with a life-threatening medical condition will get their wish granted.

Dark is recognized globally as an expert in emerging technologies, being among the early adopters of HD technology in 1986 and founding his own production company in 1991. Dark’s film, “Closing Escrow,” entirely filmed on Maxell HDCAM, presents a comical look at the real estate industry. “HD is the very best technology in filmmaking, allowing me to preserve, duplicate and edit media without compromising quality, “said Dark. “Maxell’s products provide a superior digital picture, while maintaining a high level of reliability, durability and overall performance.”
