Cartoon College

2012, 76 min.
Documentary
Directors: Josh Melrod, Tara Wray

Each fall the Center for Cartoon Studies invites 20 of the world's most promising aspiring cartoonists and graphic novelists to the ramshackle village of White River Junction, Vermont for a no-holds-barred education in comics. Those who complete the two-year program earn a Master of Fine Arts degree and are ready to face the uncertainty of a career in one of the world's most labor-intensive, drudgery-inducing art forms. CARTOON COLLEGE is their story.//Featuring a who's-who of the biggest names in literary comics, including Chris Ware, Lynda Barry, Art Spiegelman, Francoise Mouly, Scott McCloud, Jason Lutes, and James Sturm, among many others, as well as the music of Beulah, Archers of Loaf, Portastatic, Tortoise, Tokyo Police Club, Quinn Marston, The Hot IQs, The Fire Tapes, and an original score by Jason Zumpano, CARTOON COLLEGE is a fast-paced look at a school where the stakes are high and spilled ink and tears are often the only reward.
