I am a TV/film director from the University of Alabama where I make documentary films and teach a class. My documentary about cigar box guitars, "Songs Inside The Box," was shot primarily at the 3rd annual Cigar Box Guitar Extravaganza in Huntsville, Alabama. It was broadcast on Alabama Public Television last year and will be distributed to other US public TV stations in the coming months. It is available for sale on DVD through phone and mail orders and info on how to order can be found here:
