This week on The Local Take I speak with Clark Atlanta University alumna Nnegest Likké, an award winning film director, screenwriter and producer.

I ask Nnegest about her start and her first movie. She speaks about doing work in "the laboratory" explaining that there is no easy way to build your expertise.  She read every book that had been written about making movies. She talks about the screenplays she wrote that were bad, but she kept reading and writing until she thought she had something.
