Take 5 with "The Fall of Henry"

Glenn Payne, director

As we gear up for the Oxford Film Festival 2012 to be held at the Malco Studio Theater on Feb. 9-12, 2012 and also at the Lyric Theater on Saturday, Feb. 11 as part of the Oxford Music Festival line-up where we will show music films, videos and a panel on music + film, we thought we might introduce you to some of the people behind the movies we can't wait to show you. For the full schedule and description of the films, visit

Meet Take 5 filmmaker, Glenn Payne, director and producer of “The Fall of Henry.”

Q. 1: In 140 characters or less, describe your movie and why someone should see it.
A: The Fall of Henry is a glimpse into what we think we see, who we think is right, and where responsibility ultimately lies. Look closely.

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

A: It was amazing to see what type of story you could tell while keeping some aspects very limited. It may sometimes feel risky, but in the end you see why you pushed your limits.

Q. 3: Tell us about you. What is your movie making background?
A: I graduated from Mississippi State University with a degree in Fine Art. Since then I've been exploring film and striving to learn as much as I possibly can. I've made about fifteen films since then as well as acting in several projects. I'm also very proud to be a founding member of the improv comedy troupe "West of Shake Rag" which performs in Tupelo, MS as well as around the country.

Q. 4: What's your dream distribution plan for the film?
A: We really hope to travel the story around the country in various film festivals as well as taking the lessons learned from making it and applying them to our next feature film in the coming months. 

Q. 5: What does the future hold in store for your film and for you?
A: As of this moment "The Fall of Henry" has been in one film festival and we were fortunate enough to win best in show. Hopefully it will continue to find new audiences. In the meantime we are preparing for our next feature film production. You can follow us by "liking" Dead Leaf Productions on facebook.
