The Oxford Film Festival is looking for volunteers in Oxford and Lafayette County who would like to be involved in the second community film project to be shot locally this fall. Both actors, speaking and non-speaking, and crew are needed. The short comedy, produced by the Oxford Film Festival, will once again be shot by local filmmaker and Film Festival Production Director Micah Ginn. (UPDATED) Casting is tentatively scheduled for the weekend of October 8, 2011; production will be the weekend of December 9-10. The film will premiere at the 2012 Oxford Film Festival (February 9-12, 2012).

The first community film, The Hanging of Big Todd Wade, filmed in Lafayette County in January, premiered to sold-out crowds at the 2011 Oxford Film Festival. Collectable DVDs are still being sold locally at Off-Square Books, Taylor Grocery, and Oxford Bicycle Co., and can be viewed on YouTube.
