Short Film Profile

A Peacock-Feathered Blue

A 9-year-old boy is failing science. Marcel loves sketching and painting, but hates following the rules. When his mother finds out he received an F on his latest test, she threatens to take away his art supplies if he doesn't come up with a winning science project. Refusing to do what is expected or ordinary, Marcel dreams big; he wants to do something new. He wants to invent a new color. When his experiments fail and the doubts sink in, Marcel is faced with his biggest challenge: to believe in himself in order to achieve his dreams.
