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, Stacey Shirley, director of "Monster Hunt with Kevin and James." For the full schedule and description of the films, visit www.oxfordfilmfest.com. Q. 1: In 140 characters or less, describe your movie and why someone should see it. A: It's like reality TV but with more blood. Q. 2: Biggest lesson learned in getting the film made? Best part in getting the film made? A: Lesson: I'm a producer, not a director.
Best part: I won a bet. I bet my friend that I would direct a short by the end of 2010. Q. 3: Tell us about you. What is your movie making background? A: Producer of several Birmingham, AL shorts and 2 feature-length horror films. Q. 4: What's your dream distribution plan for the film? A: To post it on my blog. (I like to think big.) Q. 5: What does the future hold in store for your film and for you? A: Maybe turn it into a web series, if I can find time. And the actors agree to another Monster Hunt.
Next project is helping with a feature horror film that a friend is directing.
