Jeremy W. designs and produces a series of animated sequences for a short educational video directed by Justin Lerner for Wake Forest University. The film introduces students to concepts of curiosity, open-mindedness, and intellectual humility using the separate stories of two very different scientists on the cusp of the same important discovery. Through their practices of these three concepts, the scientists find themselves with very different outcomes.

The first animation sequence sets the tone for the story. We are generally aware of most important discoveries. Sometimes what it took to get there or what was discovered a long the way is overshadowed by the final outcome. The steps (or mis-steps) along the way are often equally important to that outcome.
