“I found out I got into USC about two weeks before I was going to get married. I was so stunned and I was talking to my wife and was like ‘So I’m not going to go.’ And she’s like ‘No, no, no…you have to go.'”
In this Film Courage video interview, Arkansas native Justin Warren [Then There Was Joe] shares how he applied to USC Film School (USC School of Cinematic Arts) on a whim (never expecting to get in), received an acceptance letter but was in the midst of planning a wedding. His wife’s encouragement to attend the school prompted him to go (where she joined him in Los Angeles after finishing college for pharmaceutical studies) and how it feels to come from a small, supportive college for the encouraging but brutally honest feedback of a larger institution.
