This is a film about grief, reflection, sadness and healing.
It's about tragedy and the kindness of others to help us move on from loss.
The man in our film has the neurological condition known as Synesthesia, which effects the way the senses make connections in the brain, sometimes causing people to think, see, and even smell in colour.
This effects the way they perceive the world and, as in the case of this film, our protagonist identifies his grief through losing the ability to see colour.
Only when he begins to heal does he start to regain his ability to perceive the colours of the world, and even then it is simply shades and tones as it is only the start of a lengthy process.
Based on a true story, this piece showcases the struggles of love and loss, revealing the hope of new paths and beginnings with the help and support of others, even a passing stranger.
Everything was shot with a 5D Mark ii, a Canon 7D, both 50mm f1.4 and 18-50mm f2.8 lenses, and edited in post with Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro.
