Take 5 with "Year of Our Lord"

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, Thad Lee, Photographer and Editor 

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

A: The story of Lucas McCarty is reason enough, but understanding how Tom Pearson and Langdon Clay came to be part of it is rich. Plus, you'll hear some beautiful music. 

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

A: I learned you should always trust Julie Chadwick when she says, "I know some good people you should meet."  I guess the best part was witnessing Lucas, his church, Tom, Langdon, and Ashley embrace all the eyes on their document of communication, the Delta, Lucas McCarty, and the people who love him.  

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

A: I made my first short film in 2001. 

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

A:  Channel 99. 

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

A:  I'm not sure, but the book is good, and worth exploring more.
