I met Brett while attending a Saturday class at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University about copyright issues and fair use. He was very approachable and we struck up a conversation and what do you know, he teaches where I got my degree. I wish he was teaching when I was at UNCG. But oh well, I have the pleasure to sit down with him and pic his brain for a while. Here’s what his bio reads on his website:

Ingram?s first documentary feature, Monster Road, won sixteen awards (including ?Best Documentary? at the 2004 Slamdance Film Festival) and screened at more than eighty festivals and cinema venues internationally before premiering on Sundance Channel in 2005.

Ingram has twice been awarded a Film and Video Artist Fellowship from the North Carolina Arts Council. He teaches filmmaking in the Department of Broadcasting and Cinema at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Ingram is currently working on Rocaterrania, a new documentary feature about the secret world of visionary artist Renaldo Kuhler.
