On his website, Benjamin Jenks calls himself a “backpacking filmmaker with a slight hitchhiking addiction.” Recently he put those two passions together and created a stop-motion video of his travels across the U.S. during which he hitchhiked from Los Angeles to Maine. Along the way, he snapped more than 3000 photos of the people he met on his journey, and compiled them altogether to give us a sense of his experience. The result is the video below, which is a fun glimpse of his travels and a creative way of taking us along with him.
