Hello! I’m Justine. Now to the third person:
Justine Garrett is a writer and filmmaker. She has written performance material and a screenplay for comedienne extraordinaire Lily Tomlin. Justine’s editorial writing has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Pasadena Magazine, thehairpin.com, and Zap2it.com, among other publications. She was a contributing writer to the SparkCollege guide to 283 Great Colleges (45 out of 283!) and was senior editor for UCLA Undergraduate Admissions, where she started one of the very first admissions blogs.
Justine has helped produce and research three science documentaries, including the Emmy Award-winning organ transplantation documentary, No Greater Love. At the Science Museum in London, she wrote and directed episodes of Antenna TV for the Antenna Science News Gallery and became an unlikely model for the “telephone tooth” (above). You know, one of those moments when your friends call you to tell you that you’re on the front cover of the Los Angeles Daily News holding an over-sized, Perspex tooth? Like that.
For over six years, Justine was an administrator at CalArts, ending her time there as Assistant Provost for Academic Affairs. She holds an MFA in Writing from CalArts and a BA in Psychology with a minor in Italian from UCLA (a winning combination!). As a student at CalArts, she was the editor of Artizen, the CalArts Student Journal and held various editorial positions, including managing editor, at Black Clock.
