CAMS alum Brit Fryer ’15 (pictured above, lower right) has been invited to Sundance as an Ignite Fellow on the strength of his CAMS comps film Trans-ience, an experimental short that explores his experience as an early-transitioning trans man. In the film, Brit intersperses footage from his daily life with a phone call from his mom describing some of the things he used to say as a kid.  Using voiceover in the form of spoken poetry, Brit describes his hopes for the future and questions how trans narratives are usually told. As a Sundance Ignite Fellow, Brit has the chance to learn from and network with established filmmakers.  “I want to be a full-time director and screenwriter,” Brit says. “I’m really interested in exploring trans black masculinity.  How do we as black trans men learn to be that way?  That’s a story I want to tell.”
