A woman seeking inspiration finds a set of watercolour paints, but things are not as straightforward as they appear.


Watercolour is a fun little story about seeking inspiration and opening up to new ideas.

This short film was created in 2020 by three friends in North-West Tasmania, Australia.

We've entered Watercolour in the worlds largest short film competition: My Rode Reel. Among the categories is the People's Choice award and it would mean a great deal to us if you would cast your vote after watching.


Behind the Scenes

As part of the My Rode Reel competition we were required to submit a behind the scenes video showing that we used a Rode Microphone in the making of our short film. You can watch our BTS video here:
