Moonlight Communications, a Digital Media Production Company based in Fayetteville and owned by Jan Johnson & Pat Wright, has garnered 2 Telly Awards for their documentary production: The Defiant One.

The first Telly Award was received for Scriptwriting. The second Telly Award was received for Documentary Production. The Defiant One is a documentary that follows the brief career of Nedrick Young, a promising writer/actor in Hollywood in the 1950’s, during the height of the McCarthy Era. Through interviews and historic films and photos, viewers revisit that dark time in America’s past. The documentary then contrasts and compares the events of today with those during the Red Scare.

The Telly Awards honor the very best local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, and work created for the Web.

The Annual Telly Awards receives more than 11,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents.
