Usher Morgan Interview with Breakaway Daily
"I think it comes down to passion. If you don’t absolute love movies, you should look into another line of work. Your passion and love for your film will infect every person on set, and if your cast and crew see how excited you are and how much you love what you’re doing, they can’t help but love it too. Love what you do, and your life will be a whole lot easier." ~ Usher Morgan
