Take 5 with "Stingray Sam"

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

Writer/Director Cory McAbee's "Stingray Sam" will be one of the late night features at this year's festival. The film screens Thursday, Feb. 4 at 10:30 p.m. and Friday, Feb. 5 at 10:40 p.m.

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

CM: Stingray Sam is a musical sci-fi space western feature.

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

CM: We tried a lot of new things, both technically and conceptually. We made it up.

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

CM: I'm self taught. I began teaching myself to do animation.

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

CM: We created Stingray Sam with a self distribution plan in mind that we are actively involved in.

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

CM: Hopefully people who might enjoy Stingray Sam will have the chance to see it. With any luck I'll be able to make another film soon.
