The two spots feature visually vibrant and painterly animations championing pollinator research and successful healthcare innovation, born from the minds of real-world Penn State students and faculty featured in live action at the end of each short. 

LOBO’s Guilherme Marconde directed the two spots titled “Christine Grozinger” and “Shevy Karbasi.”

This year’s Undergraduate and Graduate Award was named in honor of Oscar®-nominee Richard H. Kline, ASC (Camelot, King Kong). The Documentary category is dedicated to multi Oscar®-winner Haskell Wexler, ASC (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Bound for Glory).
