Take 5 with ... "Crush"

Rebecca Pugh
As we gear up for the 10th anniversary Oxford Film Festival, we wanted to introduce you to the filmmakers and their films you will experience on Feb. 21-24, 2013. Meet Rebecca Pugh, co-director of "Crush."

#1: In 140 characters or less, describe your movie and why someone should see it.
#CRUSH "One woman's quest to find the perfect chair." #unique #relationships

#2: Biggest lesson learned in getting the film made? Best part in getting the film made?
Lesson learned? That the support of friends and contacts is overwhelmingly amazing! From launching our kickstarter project, getting a crew together, shooting the film and now making the festival rounds. The support we have had from everyone, has taught me the importance of networking and looking to the community to help you in projects like this. The best part of getting the film made? Seeing an idea come to life! To see the project go from - an idea, to a script, to a film - wow!

#3: Tell us about you. What is your movie making background?
I am a first time filmmaker. I have in the past helped out a few friends out, but this is the first time I got to actually make a film. Co-director on "Crush" is Jen West, she has made another short film it was great having a friend that could help guide me. My background "career" is in local TV News.

#4: What's your dream distribution plan for the film?
"Crush" will live it's life on youtube & vimeo after we screen at Oxford.

#5: What does the future hold in store for your film and for you?
I am currently in the works to make my first feature film. The title of the film is "Bookends" and it is another play on relationships...those "did that really happen" moments. I plan on working on this project in 2013 and hopefully will hit the festival rounds with that in 2014!
