Sophomore makes ‘mess’ on YouTube

Citra Solv, a company that produces environmentally-friendly cleaning products, announced Friday that the grand-prize winner of its YouTube video contest is Branfordian Richard Miron ’12, who created a stop-motion animated movie advertising the Citra Solv all-purpose cleaner.

From the Citra Solv press release:

“An aspiring filmmaker, accomplished musician, and student at Yale University, Richard took nearly two months to create this Grand Prize winner of the Citra Solv You Tube Video Contest. We’re sure you’ll be as impressed as we are with the film, which includes an original soundtrack by Richard, too. Congratulations, Richard, and thanks for all your hard work!

    I loved the video–congrats to the guy who made it. It’s quite impressive.

    But what really jumped out at me, especially as a jar of tomato sauce was emptied onto the counter, was how comfortable we are, nonchalant even, with wasting food. Here in the US, especially at Yale, we have food to waste, while there are hungry people all over the world. I know it’s trite to say it, but it’s still true.
