AWARDS DAILY -- I started out in theatre in high school. My grandmother ran the Oakland Ensemble Theater. I wrote plays in high school and I was also part of the Black Repertory Group. I went to film school after that. That school was in San Francisco State and they were focused on documentary and experimental film. You could do narrative but it wasn’t really helping you out. I got a record deal while I was in school so I quit.
