True Colours is an animated short film I directed as part of my undergraduate degree. The idea for this film I developed in year 2 of my academic studies. Out of 80 pitches it was one of 12 film pitches selected for production. With my selected team of six, we then produced this film within the next 1.5 years.
Since mid 2020 True Colours is doing its festival runs and won't be accessible to the general public until at least the beginning of 2022.
But here I am sharing for the first time, a lot of the pre-production, production and post-production material. From concept art to render processes.
Dive into the world of True Colours and experience just how much work it contains to bring a film to life consisting "only" of 2min and 50seconds of animation.
About the storyline:
True colours is about hiding our true selves in front of other people. The main goal was for people to resonate with the feelings and internal stuggles our protagonist suffers.
