Meet Ingrid Serban, our Filmmaker In Focus. Ingrid is a Transylvania-born filmmaker and musician who is currently working on a feature doc about, none other than, vampires. In Strigoi she returns to Transylvania to collect supernatural stories and traditional Romanian folk songs from her village. She even visits Dracula's castle. She managed to get key footage before the borders closed so she has plenty of material to work on while self-isolating. "My editor managed to get home to her family in Belgium so we'll be working remotely. I remind myself to be grateful for everything I have and to do the work to finish this movie!” Ingrid sent us a video showing where she’s been working the last few weeks - watch it below.
