Wasted Talent Media has had an explosive year of growth, and they capped it off with an ADDY win the first year they entered the contest. Owned and operated by partners Erin Ludlam and Todd Volkmer they handle all aspects of the creative process when working with their clients. On their award winning entry for the Akron Art Museum, which promoted their LIVE Creative programming, the duo handled scripting, art direction, lighting, sound, cinematography, and editing.

“We are really excited to have won this great honor, and we are already working on our entries for 2016!” says partner Todd Volkmer.

According to partner Erin Ludlam “this just proves what we have been saying since our beginning, ‘do good work, and good things will follow.’”
