True Colors Short Film Review (2017) – Artistic Digging Tale

(This is True Colors short film review, which is a 2017 short film directed by a Los Angeles based creative director)

True Colors is a short film directed by Eugene Baiste, a Los Angeles-based creative director and photographer. The short film is his first dip into short film genre and it’s been uploaded to Vimeo just 5 days ago and features Julia Luciv as the silent protagonist. Will his experience in commercials be able to elevate this film from the crowd, and make it special? We are about to find out in the True Colors short film review below!



A woman appears to dig the ground in a deserted wasteland. But what’s waiting for her at the end?

A woman with a spade, and a car in a deserted wasteland, what could it mean?


True Colors Short Film Review

Man, this story itself is pretty weird and not very original, but overall it is a refreshing take from a more visual perspective. Next, the pacing is great in the beginning, but kind of slowed towards the end just a tad bit. I know it’s meant for increasing the tension, but it’s not maintained ideally with that slightly long pacing of just the woman digging the ground. Then, we have the characters, which the woman clearly stands out from normal people with her outfit and demeanor. Truth be told, this whole film and its character look like a mix of commercials and film in beautiful black & white, with the angles and editing making it look like an advertisement for some products.

I actually kind of like this style as it really stands out from other short films that feature similar stories, the director has used his skills in commercial to carve out something unique of his own. Music soundtracks are pretty epic, not the cinematic type but more like something you hear in clubs or in an epic ad. It kinds of fit, and gives the tension to the whole film from start to the end. Lastly, I love the male character’s narration that contrasts to the appearance of only the woman, and its eventual foreshadowing.

What's good
Beautiful and unique colour palette
Unique character design
Epic Soundtrack
What's bad
Pacing kinds of drag near the end
A unique visual style on a commonly seen premise
With it's pretty unique colour palette and ambiguous storyline with a weird but refreshing character, True Colors gives a fresh take on the classic genre of mystery and murder.
