Primal Waters Receives Telly Award:
Company Honored for Excellence in Nature Category

Newnan, GA (February, 2004) Primal Waters announced that it has received a Telly Award, designed to showcase outstanding non-network, cable commercials as well as film and video productions. The Telly Awards, founded in 1980, are a well-known and highly respected national competition and receive more than 10,000 entries annually. Judges are top production professionals with entries judged independently against a high standard of excellence.

“At Primal Waters, we take our work very seriously and hold ourselves to a very high standard," said Carol Brizzi, President and CEO of Primal Waters. "We are delighted to receive this recognition and hope we can continue to change the assumptions that many people make about relaxation videos.”

Primal Waters, producer of innovative digital media products and services that facilitate relaxation and meditation, as well as promote stress resiliency, introduced the first in its line of interrelated visual meditation/relaxation products late last year. The company's Telly award winning video, The 5th Season, is an organic fusion of mesmerizing natural imagery, evocative original music and natural sound and is professionally designed to help the viewer journey, gently and effortlessly within, to their own "still center", a place of soothing relaxation, tranquility and calm.

Original music for The 5th Season and its accompanying CDs, Music From The 5th Season, and Sanctuary, a guided relaxation, was written, performed and produced by Kimb Williams of UnReelMusic, a composer and licensed massage therapist. Brizzi and Primal Waters cofounder Ellen Britt, a mid-level health practitioner, were encouraged to create the new line of relaxation videos when patients complained that the usual methods of meditation advocated by their physicians were too difficult to master.

The 5th Season was shot entirely on location in upstate New YorkÕs beautiful Adirondack Park, one of the largest remaining wilderness areas in the northeast. Many viewers, even those who are regularly immersed in the outdoors, remark that with regular use, the tape helps them achieve a profound level of "relaxed alertness" and that they now have a renewed sense of wonder at nature's myriad details.

The 5th Season and its accompanying CDs are packaged to evoke the sense of calm and serenity they were created to inspire. The 5th Season, Music From The 5th Season and Sanctuary are distributed through the company's website at and are also available at selected retail outlets including spas, massage schools, hospital gift shops and specialty gift retailers. The 5th Season retails for $24.95. The CDs, Music From The 5th Season and Sanctuary, retail for $14.95 each.
