This film is about a frog’s struggle to find water on a hot summer day. It was my thesis project for SVA and was based on my summers in Florida between semesters, where it was crazy hot and there were plenty of frogs getting into places they shouldn’t have been. FROG has screened in numerous festivals and featured on the DVD Avoid Eye Contact Vol. 2 as well as Spike & Mike’s Contagious DVD
