I have been planning on starting this blog since I headed out here to Prague, and have gotten a little too absorbed by everything that has been going on around here! So finally, I have taken it upon myself to start documenting my adventures over here as well as post any interesting information regarding Film, Animation, Video Game Production industries as well as anything else that seems worth posting. If you are reading this, thank you and I hope you enjoy the entries!


So, since October 17th I have been living and working in Prague, the Capital and largest city in the Czech Republic, with other talented artists at the Art and Animation Studio on the sequel to the Czech Republic's first 3d Animated Film, Goat Story. The sequel is called, Goat Story with Cheese. Due to NDA's I am unable to explicitly describe any of the story etc... but if you wish to check out the original film, it can be found on Netflix under, Goat Story. The first film centers around the building of the astronomical clock as well as some other drama surrounding the main story. It is quite an honor to be part of this film production.

As far as what Prague is like, I have actually never been to New York City, but if New York City existed in the Czech Republic, it feels like Prague would be the closest thing to it. It's interesting because it has the hustle and bustle of any large city, but with a deep and rich corner. That being said, there are definitely tourist shops around every corner trying to sell you the most useless crap, including some of those Russian Dolls that you put inside one another. I find this funny due to them NOT being Czech, but tourists with money will buy whatever is there to buy. They all play the same american pop songs as well to lure the young teens in s their parents with fat wallets watch on, and ready their credit cards.

This is definitely a party central kind of city. The clubs do not close or ask you to leave until around 7 or 8 am. Many people from the UK or other European countries travel to Prague for a weekend to party becuase it honestly is not that expensive. An airplane ticket from Prague to the UK and back during Christmas is approximately $300.00. So, I am sure there will be a whole lot of tourists here for what will be quite a crazy new years eve celebration....

Kozi Pribeh 2 (Goat Story 2)

The only thing that I feel I can release about the film is the trailer that the studio has already released. Here is the trailer to the original film, and the teaser to the sequel which is currently in production.

So the first film follows Goat and Jemmy as they are newcomers to Old Prague. The film showcases several famous icons of Prague, such as Charles Bridge, and the Astronomical Clock. Quite cool to be working on the film and be able to walk down the street and see the clock that original film was focused on. The original film also focused on the legend of Faust. Faust was a highly succesful scholar, but being dissatisfied with his life, made a deal with the devil for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures in exchange for his soul.

Thanks for reading!

Much love,
