Fort Film Behind The Scenes 2.jpeg

Take a look inside FORT  

 

Here you’ll get a glimpse behind the scenes of FORT. Ryan Harman and Craig Hunter built forts during their beach trips in the summer of 2019. What began as a photo project became a short film about the process of their creations.

 

Using notes, drawings, and mood boards, Ryan and Craig approached the filmmaking in a transient, ad-hoc manner, resulting in a sensorial and experiential document of the filmmakers’ summer together and the forts they constructed on the beach.

 

As a film, FORT is inspired by process films, queer cinema, experimental documentaries, 'How It's Made' YouTube videos, nomadic architecture, Christopher Larkin's 1974 film 'A Very Natural Thing', Charlotte Posenenske's Sculptures, Bruce Brown's film 'The Endless Summer', artist Tracey Moffatt's video 'Heaven', and Dick Proenneke's documentary 'Alone in the Wilderness.'
