Edward Loupe was born and raised in Lawrence, Kansas. When he went to college, he decided to get as far away from the midwest as possible and attended the University of North Carolina School of the Arts for a degree in film production. While he was there he realized he actually loved the midwest and decided to come back for a graduate degree in film production. Edward has been making movies since he was a little kid and sharing stories with an audience. At Ohio University, he hopes to hone his craft and begin a professional life as a filmmaker.
