Odyssea Magistri Craft
Odyssea Magistri Craft is the first-ever animated mini-series whose languages are Latin and Ancient Greek. This mini-series is composed of five episodes, totaling over fifty minutes of intermediate level Latin and Ancient Greek. Odyssea Magistri Craft (OMC) tells the story of Magister Craft's journey to find what it will take for him to become a proper teacher, the kind his students need and deserve. This is a story about setting goals and doing everything necessary to achieve our goals. It is also a story about friendship and duty. Magister Craft will not be able to achieve this goal on his own, as is true for so many of us; rather, he will need help from his friends (old and new) and the gods.
