Sparky Award: People's Choice

Clueless Discovery from Aaron Ludwig on Vimeo.

"Washington, DC – Aaron Ludwig, a sophomore animation student at Brigham Young University, has won the first-ever Sparky Awards Peoples’ Choice prize for his short film, “Clueless Discovery.” The video was voted the best by students and others everywhere in an open online vote held earlier this Spring."

"Organized by SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) and adopted by campuses everywhere, the Sparky Awards contest calls on entrants to creatively illustrate in a short video the value of openly sharing ideas. “Clueless Discovery” is a clear presentation of how failing to share information and “reinventing the wheel” not only hampers progress, but can be harmful." --
