Brian Frye, law professor, University of Kentucky College of Law

Interviewed by Elizabeth Townsend Gard

Date February 2018

 

Brian is a law professor and a film director.  He talks to us about the differences between an art film and a commercial documentary and helps us think through copyright and other issues.  How is something unique different than something made for commercial purposes?

 

Interested in what Brian does?  I asked Brian for links:

 

Stills & more from Our Nixon are on the website: http://ournixon.com/press-materials/

You can also see the whole collection of Super-8 films on the KY Amateur Film Archives YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCao1YsLcIq2tmWjaoRHP20g/videos

 

There's lots of good info about RBMC out there. I recommend this very recent set of articles: http://www.undergroundfilmjournal.com/robert-beck-memorial-cinema-the-secret-origin/

 

As for my own films, many of them (all the scans I have) are on my youtube & vimeo pages:
