just after he finished a film studies course at uni. he said everything he was led to believe about it by his lecturer/fellow students - that it's a great chance to network, a way to get a foot in the door, have his script looked at, etc - was utter, utter bullshit. they just treat him like shit and didn't pay him anything. he ended up walking away from it and studied to be a vet instead. he's now a vet and he's much happier. be a vet, is the moral here.
