Award-winning 3D CGI short film, co-directed by Steve Smith and Simon Hewitt, and animated by Mighty. Co-written by Stu Royall and Simon Hewitt.
Grey (Tony Gardner) seeks help from a psychiatrist (Richard Atlee) when he loses his colour. Grey moves in a world where everyone has their own vibrant colour, except for him. He has gone a little grey, he seeks to find a cure to his condition by trying everything from daredevil sports, to rock concerts and acupuncture until he finally hits the bars, drinking himself to forget. With a baby on the way, Grey is worried that his condition may be hereditary and that he may pass it on to his child. Grey can’t seem to find his place in a colourful world anymore, but perhaps the arrival of a new life may be what’s needed for his spark to reignite once again.
