In This TAMP Episode Ingrid talks with Smarthouse Creative's Rachel Green about her belief in her responsibility as a filmmaker and her desire to offer her audience a new perspective. Ingrid describes how she connects with her audience - including which emotions and genre she chooses, and explains her inspiration and outlook as a filmmaker and the way that her vision of herself and where she sees herself in the industry, has shifted over time.
In explaining her absolute response as to whether or not she takes her audience into account when making work, Ingrid replies, “I think the more personal you get and the more specific you are about your own experience. Oddly enough, that translates into something more universal because I think we all struggle with the same things, deep down. All of our issues are sort of similar. So I think the more you can dig into your own imperfections, your own insecurities, your own loneliness your own struggles - that opens up the audience to be able to share that with you...being honest about those things so that people feel included."
