More about Stacey Muhammad

Award-winning filmmaker Stacey Muhammad will discuss her newest work, "For Colored Boys: Redemption." She'll share how to best use indiegogo or Kickstarter to raise money for digital film projects as well as talk about the obstacles and opportunities filmmakers face in telling stories digitally. We'll also chat with Stacey about how journalism informs the way she tells stories (Is it the same way journalism informs David Simon's story telling on 'The Wire' and 'Treme?).
