Meet Take 5 filmmaker, Felicity Flesher, director, writer, editor and DP of “Expiration Date.”
Q. 1: In 140 characters or less, describe your movie and why someone should see it.
A: One cup of ramen noodles wreaks havoc on one student's life.
Q. 2: Biggest lesson learned in getting the film made? Best part in getting the film made?
A: This film was a culmination of my summer internship with University of Mississippi Media and Documentary Projects. The best part about it was actually producing something on my own by the end, but I learned that every part of doing so from pre- to post-production is one Everest after another to clamber.
Q. 3: Tell us about you. What is your movie making background?
A: I am 18 years old, a native of Oxford, MS, and currently a sophomore at Carleton College in Northfield, MN where I plan to be a Cinema and Media Studies major. Expiration Date is my premiere short film although it is merely the beginning of my career as I continue to learn, watch, and create.
Q. 4: What's your dream distribution plan for the film?
A: Just getting into the Oxford Film Festival was a dream for my first film.
Q. 5: What does the future hold in store for your film and for you?
A: I hope to break into the film industry somewhere, somehow, with this film as my first stepping stone in the process. Hopefully I can effectively represent Oxford and Mississippi and its burgeoning film community
