Mark & Dawn Polk, owners of RV Education 101 and RV Consumer based in Harrells, N.C., recently received notification that their online RV how-to series titled “Mark’s RV Garage” is the recipient of a 2011 Telly Award.
The Telly Awards is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and Internet videos and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators and corporate video departments in the world. The 32nd Annual Telly Awards include companies, agencies and organizations of all sizes, from large multinational media companies to small ad agencies and local production houses.
Polk, a producer, editor and host of the new RV Internet series, stated, “We are elated to win this prestigious award. It makes all of the effort that goes into producing the show well worth it. I would like to thank our sponsors and advertisers; without them the show would not be possible.”
Mark’s RV Garage is a bi-monthly RV show featuring a vintage travel trailer restoration project, RV product reviews, RV product installations, EZ RV upgrade projects, RV tips and information, RV Q&A segments and RV destinations.
Video producer, RVer and host Mark Polk teaches new and experienced RVers how to use, maintain and accessorize their RV in the 30-minute television-style online show titled “Mark’s RV Garage.”
In each episode, there are segments on RV product reviews, RV product installations, EZ RV upgrades, Q & A, camping destinations, RV trivia and much more, according to a news release. The feature segment in each episode is a vintage trailer restoration project Polk is doing from start to finish.
“The viewer response is incredible; people especially like the vintage restoration project segment,” Polk stated. “Things started off a little slowly, but as the word spreads views have steadily increased with each new show episode we release. Over the past eight weeks we have released four episodes, and between hosting the show on one of our sites, and on You Tube, we have had over 23,500 views to date collectively.”
Current and previous show episodes can be found at http://rvvideosondemand.com/?page_id=307.
Polk explained the current plans for the new show are to produce one season (eight to 10 episodes), and then take a short break while they film new episodes for season two.
Mark and Dawn Polk own RV Education 101, a video production and information company specializing in RV instructional DVDs on how to use and maintain RVs. They also released a brand new website, designed specifically for the RV consumer, earlier this year. The URL is http://www.rvconsumer.com.
“We are the RV consumer advocates,” Polk said. “Folks in the RV industry build RVs and sell RVs, but I have always felt there was a huge lack of educating the RV consumer on how to properly use the RV after the consumer purchases it. That’s what we do, we work very hard to educate the RV consumer.”
With over 18 DVD titles in its RV training library, and books and e-books, the Polks felt the only place left to go was to produce a TV-style RV “how-to” show for RVers to enjoy and learn from.”
“RV Education 101” has released the third episode of “Mark’s RV Garage,” an Internet-based RV how-to series. The show is available for viewing at www.rvconsumer.com and on You Tube.
Mark Polk, video producer and founder of Harrells, N.C.-based “RV Education 101,” stated in a news release, “The response from viewers so far indicates they enjoy the how-to show format we are using, so episode No. 3 follows the same general guidelines. Each episode of the show is packed with helpful information on a variety of RV topics geared toward the RV consumer.”
“Mark’s RV Garage” features a vintage travel trailer restoration project, RV product reviews, RV product installations, EZ RV upgrade projects, RV tips and information and an RV destination spot.
