I really like the idea of a wanderjahr. A wanderjahr is defined as a year of wandering to perfect ones craft, by apprenticing and learning from the masters. I feel like this summer definitely kicked of the start of my own personal year of wandering and now that I am in Prague, I am trying to soak up as much adventure, stop motion culture and excitement before I begin my final film at Calarts.

Prague is a crazy, exciting, sarcastic, and loving place. I have made a few good friends so far, that have shown me their favorite secret places in Prague. The vibrance of this city is staggering. I love just getting lost and wandering in and out of all the little shops and parks and alley ways. I think I am finally getting a grasp of the sense of humor this city is soaked in.

Prague! My flat is right next to that middle bridge on the left.

Adventures with Frankenhole

I had the most amazing summer working on a stop motion show called Frankenhole on Adult Swim. I worked in the model shop building props and sets. I met some of my new favorite people in the world and can't wait to see the finished season when it airs this Fall/Winter!

 I also had a chance to intern for one of my favorite studios, Screen Novelties, and all I can say is, BE EXCITED for what is coming from them. I can't wait to work more with them. If this summer was any indication of my future career, I am in for a happy life.

We in the model shop, loved our boss Huy so much that we made ourselves into bugs for his massive and amazing bug collection as a thank you. 

I will be able to share some more images from the show after it airs, but until then, I will leave you with some tiny movie snacks.
