Fenced Off explores the reality that loving your neighbor can be complicated.
At that time we were working on a romantic comedy that was going to shoot September of 2010. We realized in July, however, that we were going to have to delay that production until the next year. Our conversations about Fenced Off changed from nonchalant dreaming to serious consideration. “Could we actually do this?” we asked each other.
Even though on paper we were under-resourced in every way possible, in October of 2010 a ragtag collection of storytellers made a little movie together. For me, it felt like building a childhood fort in the woods. It was hard work full of challenges, missteps, hurdles and conflict, but every day I woke up excited to march out through the wet grass and keep building. We had a mission with a deadline. Which meant there were goals to hit hour by hour. But it didn’t feel like work. It felt like a group of friends, collaborators and builders all pooling their talents and resources to create something together. And honestly, our motivation was purely that. Sure we hope the movie will be good and find its way into theaters or DVD players. But the real reason we spent 12 hours a day working our tails off was because it is a magical thing to collaborate. For a couple weeks in October, we were a band of misfits building a fort in the middle of a tall forest, completely and happily lost in the process. by Brad Wise
