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, Randall Hopkins, creator of "Stationary Guard Robot."

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

A: Stationary Guard Robot is under two minutes long, but every single frame of it contains unique social commentary.
Q. 2: Biggest lesson learned in getting the film made? Best part in getting the film made?

A: Paper is a lot easier to work with than people.
Q. 3: Tell us about you. What is your movie making background?

A: I've been fascinated with the camera and its place in storytelling ever since my dad let me hold his old RCA VHS camcorder for the first time as a kid.
Q. 4: What's your dream distribution plan for the film?

A: Youtube. If I'm allowed to go nuts with this dream: over ONE HUNDRED views.
Q. 5: What does the future hold in store for your film and for you?

A: It'd be great if Stationary Guard Robot found life online. I'm hard at work on another 2D animated project, so the future is potentially very exciting.
