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, Michael Williams, director of "Lukos," playing in the Mississippi narrative block.

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

A: Lukos is an unconventional drama with a bit of a horror twist. It explores the relationship between two interesting characters who are dealing with an issue. 
Q. 2: Biggest lesson learned in getting the film made? Best part in getting the film made?

A: While tackling a film like this with very limited time and funding was extremely intimidating, it is more than possible to accomplish it when you have a very talented and committed cast and crew who volunteer their time to do what they love.
Q. 3: Tell us about you. What is your movie making background?

A: I am an independent filmmaker from West Point, Ms who currently owns a video and photography business and produces my own short films on the side. I also work in film primarily as a 1st assistant camera and plan to one day be a full time cinematographer.
Q. 4: What's your dream distribution plan for the film?

A: I hope this film can screen at numerous festivals across the country over the next year and allow for more opportunities to make bigger and better films in the future.
Q. 5: What does the future hold in store for your film and for you?

A: This film will hopefully be screening at various film festivals throughout 2011. As for myself, I hope my current plans for a few new short films will come to fruition and that I am able to continue juggling owning a business and working on many more film productions as an AC and ultimately become a cinematographer.
