Take 5 with "Streets of Plenty"
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.
Corey Ogilvie's "Streets of Plenty" screens Friday, Feb. 5 at 5:30 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 6 at 1 p.m.
OFF: In 10 words, describe your movie and why someone should see it.
CO: Ever want to try homelessness? For 30 days, we did.
OFF: Biggest lesson learned in getting the film made? Best part in getting the film made?
CO: Biggest Lesson: all people want to share their story, its just how you ask about it. Best Part: finishing.
OFF: Tell us about you. What is your movie making background?
CO: I, Corey Ogilvie (co-director) directs factual and dramatic film, of all lengths. "Think Peace" (2008) was his first feature documentary, which premiered at the 2008 Queens International FIlm Festival. Alex Kleider (co-director) graduated Vancouver Film School's animation program, and this film has been his first project. He and his brother Misha Kleider conceptualized the film.
OFF:: What’s your dream distribution plan for the film?
CO: We hope to get distribution of any type, so people can see the state of things in Vancouver.
OFF: What’s the future hold in store for your film and for you?
CO: Focusing more on short form projects, both factual and dramatic... currently polishing up a Director's Guild of Canada kickstart short-film editing project. The whole point is to improve with each project.
