What's this about?

Kids do not want to be contained—they are built for adventure.

As a culture, we are wildly protective of our little ones, often to the point of protecting them from happy accidents and mistakes they might learn from. “Young Explorers” is a series of short films about what happens when you allow kids who are very young—who have just learned to walk by themselves—to explore the world completely on their own.

Who is behind this?

Jacob Krupnick is a filmmaker and photographer based in Brooklyn, NY, and the founder of Wild Combination. His personal work incorporates movement and storytelling in public space. He's the director of film Girl Walk // All Day, a feature-length dance film shot in the streets of New York.

Taylor Antisdel is the lead camera operator on most the films thus far.


We're eager to find a way to bring the project to other places, and document the explorations of kids around the world. Have any ideas? Want to talk about partnership? Cool: hit us up.
