Filming on Fire Island since 1970

A few days ago I came across this NY Times article from late last year. When you are making media, I believe it is important to understand your history and Wakefield Poole was certainly a pioneer. Immediately I went down an internet rabbit hole learning about him and his films. I recommend you do the same!

His 1971 pornographic film "Boys in the Sand" was even reviewed in Variety after it achieved some mainstream success. The NY Times article I linked above is a good overview of Wakefield Poole's life, but if you want to learn about the porn (or are stuck on this side of the NY Times paywall), take a look at this link. It even has interactive photos showing the house from the film then and now.
