    So is there a site where you can actually view the video?

    I'm surprised they didn't name the short "Pwned."

    Also, it's very frustrating that they never put these shorts online. Every year there's an article about the greatness of the BYU animation program, but one can only ever see a 20 second clip from one of the shorts. I assume it's a intellectual property issue.

    What about having students agree as part of the project terms that any proceeds derived from advertising shown with the videos will be returned to the program in the form of better tech for future students or something like that. I'm sure these shorts could be very successful on Vimeo, Youtube, etc.

    @entropyman - The short was actually originally named "Pwned." They ended up changing it to "Owned" later.

    Why are these shorts not available to view in full? From the BYU release:

    "Since the shorts are still in the running for other awards, they are prohibited from being posted online in full. In-person screenings are sometimes available at different events on the BYU campus. The BYU Center for Animation is in the process of making past student Emmy winning videos available on its website."
