"debt-O-nator" Public Service Video

Indigo Productions e-mailed me to tell me that a DePaul student (Quinn Wilson) had received an honorable mention for competing in a Public Service Announcement video production competition sponsored by Indigo Productions, a video and multimedia company in New York, NY.

Update (March, 2012): Eric Wolfram emailed me (thanks!) and alerted me to the fact that the embedded video is now private, and will not play.

You might recognize some DePaul students and landmarks in the video.

Quinn produced his PSA for Barrack Obama's video challenge to support the President's healthcare reform.
