Logline: In the summer of 2016 an adventurous crew of artists and filmmakers will head out into the middle of the ocean to pull off the most ambitious, dangerous and exciting mural project in history: Painted Oceans.
Artist Tristan Eaton has assembled a team of world-renowned Street Artists to paint murals on the historic WWII & Pirate Radio Red Sand Sea Forts off the east coast of England. The new documentary feature, “Painted Oceans” will capture the entire process as the artists live at sea for one month, battling weather and danger on all fronts while striving for their place in Art History. The longevity and restoration of these forts is our top priority. However, without a huge influx of support and attention, these forts could fall into the ocean forever
Executive Producers: Tristan Eaton and Lousisa St. Pierre
Co-Producers: Mark MacInnis and Aaron Lloyd Barr
Director/ Producer: Pascal Franchot
About the Film:
“Painting murals on the Red Sands forts pays homage to their beautiful history and almost gives them the parade they deserved, but never got for their service. These forts are a timeless symbol of resistance. Whether fighting the tyranny of the Nazis during WWII or fighting censorship in their Pirate Radio days in the ’60s – they’ve always been on the frontline of defense against oppression. This makes them a perfect icon for the spirit of the Street Art & Graffiti movement and I think it’s important to share their story with a new generation.” – Tristan Eaton
