When Bears Attack

Behind the scenes
“Let’s just say that there’s a lot of gay motherfuckers on this set, and the extras area downstairs is a pickup joint,” says Ferber, who wore a leather harness as an extra during a dance scene the previous afternoon. “You’ll see people making out, flirting, nipple-tweaking, and all the actors are constantly cuddling and massaging each other between takes. I even heard about some hard-ons the other day. There are a couple of straight guys mixed in, but actors are touchy-feely in general, so they certainly haven’t disrupted the gay vibe.”
Ferber adds that if BearCity is a roaring success as expected, his and Langway’s furry tales may tickle extras in other gay meccas like San Francisco in the future.
“The film ends with a hint of what a sequel might be -- kind of like the Joker card at the end of Batman Begins -- so you’ll have to wait and see,” he says.
And if that’s not good enough reason to suck down another round of dirty jocks, I don’t know what is.
BearCity screens Sunday, July 18 at 2:30 p.m. at the Redcat in Los Angeles. For more information, log onto outfest.org.
