Take 5 with "Night of the Loup Garou"

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.

You may know Micah Ginn's face as one of the co-directors of the film festival, but this year Ginn will share duties as a filmmaker as well as director. Ginn's film will screen on Friday at 9:15 p.m. Ginn and cast and crew will be on hand for a Q&A. But for now, here is take 5 with Micah Ginn...

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

MG: Does Werewolf count as one or two words?

OFF: Biggest lesson learned in getting the film made? Best part in getting the film made?

MG: Biggest lesson learned: Panty-hose help keep werewolf fur out of your mouth and eyes. Best part: Working with good friends and having fun on set.

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

MG: One of my older brothers bought an 8mm film camera and projector at a yard sale in 1983. We made a couple of short films and I thought it was the best thing ever, and I still do.

OFF: What’s your dream distribution plan for the film?

MG: I think it'd be a good fit for SyFy, so we'll investigate that avenue first. Do you know anyone that works at SyFy?

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

MG: The Night of the Loup Garou 2 is currently in development. We are raising the ante for ourselves the next go 'round and plan to actually pay the folks who work on the film.
