About this submission

Eli aspires for a big film studio internship. Faced with floods of rejections, he questions his self-worth and what "success" really means. Young people, especially young creatives, must deal with rejection on a daily basis. I created this short film during the stay-at-home order because, like so many young adults, I'm tired of the "there are other more qualified candidates" emails. It's so easy to equate these no's to our self-worth. I wrote this short to show that they don't go hand in hand. The only yes that matters is the one you give to yourself.
