Each morning, while running down Wilshire Blvd, I would pass by Cinema Makeup School and daydream about the monsters lurking inside. Little did I know that Famous Monsters and CMS had a long history of working together. Of course, once I found out about the friendship, I jumped at the chance to take a tour and meet some of the students and staff. I was completely blown away by the available coursework and level of talent fostered at the school.
