We had the good fortune of connecting with Doneilea Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Doneilea, how do you think about risk?
Being alive is a risk, taking risks are the only way to find out the true purpose in life. Life is full of obstacles and challenges. Most see taking on a challenge is risky, but sitting down playing it safe and take what’s given to you is the ultimate definition of defeat and lack of growth. Film has been my ultimate challenge and growth.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
As an Artist, I view life and everything I see and touch with art. My approach to overcome the challenges set forth is to accept failure and understand that without it, there’s no success. All my failures allowed me to become who I am today.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Atlanta has been one of the greatest cities to lived in since I’ve discovered my passion for film. Everyone has a born passion for art and I believe the heart of Atlanta is becoming the biggest diverse hub for having a good time, especially to express yourself as an Artist.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I always want to give the biggest shout out to my family and close friends for the support and encouragement. My Father Joseph Williams particularly has been the biggest support in the growth of my business and I can’t thank him enough.
