It's been a big year for 'Moonlight' film director Barry Jenkins. His movie about the struggles and revelations of a young black man have garnered praise throughout the film industry. The movie draws on experiences from Jenkins' own life. And while storytelling has always felt natural to him, many of the skills needed to bring his visions to screen were learned at his alma mater, Florida State University.
