One thought on “Expeducation: Stop Motion

  1. 180410120091/E

    First of all, is that a typo in the last message? Fortunately, there is your dramatization to clear things up. I would like to say this is a good motion although over all your message is little bit taken side to the ‘experience’ one. I can see the paradox in the real life and the ideal in your motion. Well, not every major need that kind of experience to be success. But I agree that college is a moment when you could expand your possibilities of making a living and to extend your ability and relationship with others. Both of the characters flaws in their own way, the ending disturb me but it’s just a matter of perspective so it’s still an ‘okay’. Though, I failed to see your attempt to show that education and experience are in the same explanation of ‘important’ in this motion. Thank you.
