This strip is dedicated to all the film school graduates out there who feel like they’re a failure, because they don’t have a job “in the industry.” Just a little reminder that you are not alone in thinking that.

This is actually a true story that happened to a friend of mine from film school. This friend has had some paying film production jobs since graduation, but has his job at a video store to support himself when he doesn’t have those kinds of jobs. He was at a bar where he bumped into two people he knew from film school, both of which were working at the bar. The three of them shared a moment of relief in knowing that they were all in the same boat over at least a year since graduation.
