Seriously, not taking the piss here,I'm asking a genuine question. My mate's on £14k working as an edit assistant at a film/TV post-production company and is on £14k. This is 3 years after we graduated (so 24) and has to get his dad to pay for his travel, otherwise he can't live.
Do people really manage on this amount, paying London rent and suchlike? If so, how? Genuinely interested.
