Bombshell Films was founded in 2003 in Wilmington, NC, by Ingrid Jungermann and Karen McIntyre. Their first short film, “Viewpoint,” was shot in six days on location in Wilmington and premiered at the Cucalorus Independent Film Festival.
Bombshell Films’ home base is now in Brooklyn, NY, where Ingrid Jungermann continues to produce projects with The Bombshell Vision in mind.
Ingrid grew up in Palm Bay, FL, and moved to Charlotte, NC, to pursue an undergraduate degree in journalism. She then spent five years in Wilmington where she started Brawdeville, an all-women’s performance art company, and worked as a casting assistant on the Tim Burton film, “Big Fish.”
She moved to Brooklyn eight years ago where she continued to work in production while also writing, directing and producing her own independent theater and film.
In 2010, she completed an internship at Newfest: NY LGBT Film Festival in conjunction with a grant from AMPAS (Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) and worked as a Teacher’s Assistant for the NYU Summer High School Film Program.
Ingrid is a 2011 recipient of the NYWIFT Scholarship and is currently a thesis student at NYU: Tisch School of the Arts in the Graduate Film Program, where she was also awarded a Graduate Assistantship in Editing. She was co-creator of a popular web series, “The Slope.”
Ingrid has currently posted all eight new episodes of her web series, “F to 7th,” which she is developing into a television show. She is also writing two features – “Traumata,” a story about a Claudia, an ambitious undergraduate born into a family of failure who is invited to join The Lab, an underground female fight club run by her charismatic professor, and “Body of Work,” a horror film about the downward spiral of a lesbian break-up.
Ingrid was chosen as one of Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 Faces of Independent Film in 2012 and is one of the 2012 OUT100 People of the Year.
Karen is a New York-based producer who grew up in Charleston, WV, and received her undergraduate degree in art with a specialization in photography. She then went to film school at FAMU in Prague, and VGIK in Moscow where she produced and directed narrative films for “A Dozen Columbuses,” a series which aired internationally.
Karen was the Events Coordinator for the WV International Film Festival and served on the Board of Directors for the Cucalorus Independent Film Festival. She also worked in locations, set decorating and production coordinating in the film industry and acted as Production Coordinator at the Wilmington Film Commission in North Carolina.
