"Where Rainbows Turn Black"
HERE IS THE TRAILER!
Our story begins in 1999 when a large group of people takes their lives as a family. This backdrop serves as the trauma and mysterious past for our characters. Fast forward to Spring Break 2014, Margot is a shy, naive teenager in High School. She lives with her less-than-perfect father and constantly feels the need to fill a void in her life. One night, Margot steps out of her comfort zone by going to a party with her best friend. She meets the mystifying and intriguing Quiana. Unsurprisingly, Margot falls for her instantly, Once again temporarily shutting out her problems.
After an argument with her friend and father, she decides to spend her spring break with Quiana back in her hometown. Margot's world is widened and then quickly closed around her as she meets faces that feel all too familiar. Margot is suddenly surrounded by self-destruction and people with skewed morals. We use Margot as an anchor to explore these people and their world, creating A twisted multi-character tension-filled journey as Margot discovers the truth that she never asked for.
Our Intention has always been the same. Bend filmmaking tropes with impactful character moments and fast-paced, contained storytelling. Visually, our film puts you in our world with lots of stylistic long takes, and color choices that exist to service the story and heighten Margot’s journey.
As soon as we started Production, people brought their talents, creativity, and heart to the project. From there it flourished into something even better than we could have ever imagined. While we take the time in this film to explore a plethora of characters, the focus of the message has always rested with Margot and her struggle to co-exist with herself. Margot learns an important coming-of-age life lesson dressed as a psychological, drug-fueled thriller. She learns to appreciate those around us, and above all to be there for yourself when life gets tough.

"Where Rainbows Turn Black" is created by a team of art students in their 20s that came together during the pandemic and safely pulled off a feature film. The film is Written and Directed by Grant Scott Anderson & Neo Wagner. Our third partner in crime is our Assistant Director, Focus Puller, and Lead Gaffer Henry Eitel. The film wouldn't be what it is without the Original Score being Produced by Maximillion Bohlke-Slater, an Actor and Musician. The Sound Recording for the film was switching constantly but headed by Nahir Thomas-El Beze.
Our community of Actors is theatre-based and Trained Performers. However, acting wasn’t the only thing they brought to the table. much of the cast took on roles of Producing, Prop Design, Costume Design, Behind-The-Scenes Photos, and Catering. This film truly was the purest form of a community effort.
Thank you for all your help. if you’ve ever worked with us know how passionate we are about our work. We hope that rainbows make you feel that passion and love every step of the way.
We are so grateful and proud of what we’ve accomplished so far and we know that with your help, we can do so much more. Help us reach our goals and our dreams. We love you all!!!
