Instructions

This is the story of a world that exists only in black and white. The trees, the houses, the people, all in black and white. Everything and everyone are the same. And life is good.

The story itself follows a character through a series of ordinary events. We watch as they wake up, go to school, brush their teeth, etc. But this character hides a colorful secret that sets them apart from everyone else. A secret that scares them. What does it mean? And how would others react if they found out? Unsure of what it all means, we watch as they try to hide this secret from the world around them and how that impacts them internally.

I hope you enjoy! <3

Notes and Credits

When creating this project, I drew a lot of inspiration from my own life. I wanted to express the emotion of what it felt like to grow up closeted and afraid of what it might mean to share my secret with the world. But more importantly, I wanted this project to be about the knowledge that there is beauty in the seemingly unordinary parts of ourselves.

Embracing those aspects of who we are can be life changing - it certainly was for me. And once I did, I was pleasantly surprised to find there were many others just like me and those 'unordinary' parts of myself that I hid for so long didn't seem so unordinary after all. <3
