We’ve asked the filmmakers for the 11th annual Oxford Film Festival the same five questions. Meet Jim Bulian, director, writer and producer of “Long Black Limousine.”
This film will be screening Saturday, Feb. 8 at 1 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 9 at 4:15 p.m.
#1: In 140 characters or less, describe your movie and why someone should see it.
It’s odd, off-beat and not what you would expect.
#2: Biggest lesson learned in getting the film made? Best part in getting the film made?
I learned a lot of what not to do. Specifically, know your role - whether you are a grip, camera operator, or story board artist - and execute it well. The best part of making this film is interacting with the crew who are there for the betterment of the film and, also, realizing a dream.
#3: Tell us about you. What is your movie making background?
Born to Greek immigrants in St. Louis, MO, and transplanted in Oxford, MS. Finally realized that filmmaking was my calling around the age of 42. Better late than never.
#4 What do you want the Oxford Film Festival audience to know about your film that isn’t obvious from its title or description?
It is not your typical ‘slash ‘em up’ film. As a matter of fact, there is none of that. Expect some comedic moments.
#5: What does the future hold in store for your film and for you?
Who knows what the future holds. More filmmaking? I sure do hope so.
