During the summer before college, two best friends are stressed about the fate of their friendship as they search for a mysterious street artist tagging over artwork throughout their neighborhood.
“Fading Colors”, at its core, is a gritty story about the stability of friendship coming to light amid a local mystery. We hope that this film can thoroughly entertain and remind us that friendship is too important to let it just fade away.
This is a short film taking place in a local neighborhood of Chicago following two best friends, Violet and Finn, who get caught up in a search for a local street artist that has been tagging over local artwork. The two friends grew up together and had never been apart for too long, and Violet was now preparing to move away for college and away from Finn for the first time. She loved art and made street art, specifically throughout high school. Lately, she has lost her creative spark and wants to move away and not think about it anymore. Finn feels the opposite. He would do anything to help her realize that she shouldn’t let the past and her passion slip away. Finn’s enthusiasm about Violet’s artwork is all just a way for him to avoid talking about his insecurities regarding their friendship. The project is ambitious, but we have a fantastic team lined up prepared to make the best film possible. Ranging from college students to industry professionals to military veterans, this team is full of people who have a story to tell. We hope to tell a story that will show the reality of friendship and the relationship between the past and the future uniquely and unforgettably!
