Forty Fort Films was started by Tom Alexander for the sole purpose of creating an environment for artists to develop ideas to bring to television and the big screen. With the experience and skill of a hand picked production staff, this small company is dedicated to creating original animated films, and eventually live action projects.
Based in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale metropolitan area, Forty Fort Films can draw on South Florida’s large pool of talented actors, writers, musicians, and other artists and technicians.
The first project completed by the FFF team is Alexander’s own “The Smart Alecks,” a pilot for an adult-based cartoon series.
Considered the film arm of Alexander Productions, Forty Fort Films takes it’s name from the town of Forty Fort, Pennsylvania, where Alexander grew up. It was in his family’s own movie theater, named after the town as well, where his dreams and ideas were born. Incidentally, the unusual name of Forty Fort is actually quite appropriate. It’s a tribute to the first forty settlers and pioneers who built a fort there during America’s Revolutionary days.
It’s with that pioneering spirit that Forty Fort Films, along with Alexander Productions, prides itself in developing and creating unique, entertaining films.
“It’s important to me to be surrounded by people who love what they’re doing 100% of the time. I want to create that environment,” says Alexander. “We roll up our sleeves and pour ourselves into it, but we also have to laugh and have fun, because the greatest, funniest, most creative ideas come from people who are having a good time. Do what you love and love what you do. We must always maintain that spirit.”
