Hit home much?
There's a lot of kickstarters out there. Some of them are terrible, some of them make us do some sort of "hmm" quizzical thinking face, and some make us yet again invested in the storyline of the human race. Welcome to that third one.
An upstate New York-based filmmaker named Winslow Crane-Murdoch is a jobless, recent college graduate. Instead of wondering what's going to become of his situation and student loans, Murdoch is attempting to explore the current postgrad landscape for what it is--and embark on a cross-country documentary project about the challenges recent graduates face as they enter the job market.
As someone who exists, feel like this isn't only relevant, but it could be potentially be huge in a way that important people will one day say important quotes about it.

The outpouring of support for this project has been unbelievable. I have received so many messages from other graduates that are in a similar situation, and believe that this film should be made. Many of them I have never met, or rarely spoken with, yet they have taken the time to thank me for raising awareness about the many issues that face America’s younger generations. To quote just a few:
“They told me an engineering degree would lead to a great job right away. But now that I'm here, I realize that those words aren't true for any degree anymore.”
“I fully relate to the weight of debt that students face as I've been piling it on over the past four years”
“I really hope you get all the funding you need. Thank you so much for raising awareness and being active for all of us in the same position.”
I’ve been offered couches to sleep on, and warm meals in towns where I’ll stop. The link to this page has been shared over 350 times on Facebook alone. This project started as a small dream of mine, but through the amount of unexpected support I’ve received, I’ve come to realize it represents something larger that so many people can relate to.
