Fearless Minds Theatrical is a theatre and film production project of Marrok Sedgwick, especially focusing on activism supporting disability communities and queer communities. The purpose of FMT is to produce activist works that center disabled and queer perspectives and stories. FMT is an activist project, not a professional company.
Please note that FMT is not a formal production company and does not have a regular production schedule. FMT is the project name under which Marrok Sedgwick makes film and performance/theater art as a part of his activism and as a hobby. Sedgwick can be available to support other activist projects with videography and editing services when time and resources allow, on a sliding scale. He is also available to mentor other activists and youth who wish to use film, performance, and/or theatre for their activism on a limited basis, as time and resources allow.
