“I spend every day doing something I love. I love having a vision and using tools to see that vision come to life on the screen. You have to be really quick at thinking and making calls so it definitely challenges you. I also love learning how to create content that provokes change.”.

- Jazz Thornton, Director/Author/Co-Founder of Voices of Hope

“The film industry is an amazing place to work. I still don’t feel like I have a real job. I probably never will. No two jobs are the same and no two days are the same. You’re always somewhere different working with new costumes, sets, designers and crew.” 

- Sarah Goodhue, Costume Assistant for Ghost in the Shell, The Hobbit, Da 5 Bloods
