Take 5 with "Antiquities"

As we gear up for the Oxford Film Festival 2011 to be held at the Malco Studio Theater on Feb. 10-13, 2011, we thought we might introduce you to some of the people behind the movies we can't wait to show you.

Meet Take 5 filmmaker, Daniel Campbell, director of "Antiquities," playing in the shorts block on Friday, Feb. 11 at 11 a.m. and Saturday, Feb. 12 at 6 p.m.

For the full schedule and description of the films, visit

Q. 1: In 140 characters or less, describe your movie and why someone should see it.

A: Antiquities is an offbeat, romantic comedy that is set in an Antique mall. It's a character driven film that everyone can relate to.

Q. 2: Biggest lesson learned in getting the film made? Best part in getting the film made?

A: The biggest lesson I learned is to surround myself with amazingly talented, patient people that share the same vision.

The best part about getting this film made is getting to watch the audience's response, and getting to take a break from those people (they aren't that patient...)

Q. 3: Tell us about you. What is your movie making background?

A: I started off in casting with a film by Rod Lurie called Nothing But The Truth. After that I started working on the set more and more with other projects, and decided to write and direct my own film.

Q. 4: What's your dream distribution plan for the film?

A: The dream would be to get at least a limited theatrical release and DVD distribution deal for the feature.

Q. 5: What does the future hold in store for your film and for you?

We are currently writing the feature version of the film and plan to shoot it hopefully later this year.. I hope that happens soon, because I'm hungry...
