Numa Perrier Tells Her Story Like No One Else Could – Just Shoot It 230

Numa Perrier shares her life story in her film Jezebel that featured at SXSW and is now on Netflix. We talk about the work that goes into making a feature that you may not have expected from the start, and the craft of taking limitations and turning them into advantages. We also dig into the perseverance it takes to become a working director, and how persevering turned her youtube channel Black&Sexy TV into network TV.
