Dan Warner is a desaturator, tasked with sapping beauty from the world in a future where Color is used as energy. When his superiors suspect that he may secretly be hoarding color in order to support his “unhealthy” passion for drawing, Dan is reassigned to the outer precincts where he is faced with a decision that will decide the course of his future.
An ambitious collaboration between director Jackson Miller, producer Matt Rebong and VFX artists David Reynolds and Chris Purse (as well as many others) Prism is a gripping short with beautiful, professional level VFX which accentuate the unique world and characters. Completed as a Chapman thesis film on a student budget and with limited resources, the film has nonetheless garnered industry attention and awards. Prism has now been released publicly (check it out below!) If you enjoy the film, share it with a friend!
