Take 5 with "Sleep Paralysis"

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, Kory Drahos, director of "Sleep Paralysis" 
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: My film is a minimalist approach to video art production. It is my hope that I can evoke a sense of empathy from the viewers toward suffering from chronic parasomnia disorders. This idea should translate in the form of a visceral reaction from the audience as the film is being watched.

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

A: The biggest thing I learned about this film making process is that what you decide to put in the video's composition is equally if not more important than what you choose not to.

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

A: I am an Imaging Arts emphasis at Ole Miss with a passion for video installation art. This film is beneficial in my progression as a video artist.

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

A: I hope to have this film shown in modern art galleries nationally as a part of a multimedia installation.

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

A: This film is the beginning of an ambitious career in video and installation art.
