Presidential Style was in attendance this year on Saturday September 17th Downtown Wilmington NC at The Union Station. We caught up with amazing Schelle H Purcell and she gave us an interview.
Schelle has produced 7 stage plays, 5 short films and Two Wrongs is her first feature film. Three of her projects were selected for the Wilmington NC Black Film Festival, The Vows, Five Little Girls and Two Wrongs. This was her first time in Wilmington as well as her first time submitting her work in any film festival. Schelle goes on to tell us this was a really big deal to her because Ava DuVernay is someone she looks up to and DuVernay made her start to success when she was honored here. She felt honored to be among all the great filmmakes that were apart of the festival. This was a big confidence booster because three of Schelle’s project were selected and she is even more inspired to get back in the lab to work on some new and up coming projects. She is originally from Mississippi she moved to Raleigh NC where she lived for ten years working at Lenovo. She felt trapped yet inspired to follow her dreams, so she packed up and moved Atlanta GA in pursuit of happiness. She met Nikkita Donyal Johnson who is a featured actress in her movie 2 Wrongs who then introduced her to Daniel Dickey. Schelle gives The Resource Guild credit for helping her brand herself with the success of her feature red carpet event in Atlanta.

“Two Wrongs” Synopsis: We all know the cliché “Two wrongs don’t make it right”. But when lies, deception, love and lust mingle; two wrongs may not make it right but the cost of making it even was a debt Kevin & Liberty Dallas didn’t know they would have to pay.
