Take 5 with "Fledgling"

The 7th annual Oxford Film Festival is getting closer every day. Before we kick off another fun-packed festival, we thought we would take five with filmmakers and get to know them just a little better.

Tony Gault's film, "Fledgling" screens on Friday at 11:15 a.m. and Saturday at 10 a.m.

OFF: In 10 words, describe your movie and why someone should see it.

TG: "Fledgling" is about the domestication of humans as well as wild animals.

OFF: Best part in getting the film made?

TG: Testing a new film stock called Velvia and seeing that baby crows have beautiful blue eyes.

OFF: Tell us about you. What is your movie making background?

TG: We've been making short films for over 15 years. We love the freedom (and restrictions) that the short form offers us.

OFF: What’s the future hold in store for your film and for you?

TG: We're working on a series of similar short documentaries about our neighbors in the beautiful Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado. Elizabeth is finishing one about a horse whisperer who works with children, and Tony is working on one about a 75 year old Buddhist pilot who's building his own stunt plane.
