On The Road (inspired)

Two years ago, inspired by Jack Kerouac’s iconic novel, On the Road, Benjamin Oliver Jenks left his job at a school for at-risk teens and set off on a 14,000 mile hitchhiking trip around the United States. Using more than three thousand photographs from his adventure, Jenks created an amazing stop-motion video of his trip with help from 930 random strangers. The humorous and touching short film manages to incorporate iconic locales around America as background for Jenks’ social experiment.
