No Such Thing As Color

About the Film

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be color blind? Could an increased ability in one of our senses be caused by our lack of ability in another? “No Such Thing As Color” is a nine-minute documentary that shows us what the world looks like through the eyes of Evans Forde, a color blind musician with insightful opinions about the importance of color in our lives.

This is Laura Evans’ first film (shot entirely on a Flip HD camera and produced on a Mac) as her final project for the Introduction to Documentary Filmmaking class at the Pasadena Art Center. Evans Forde, the documentary’s subject, wrote and performed all of the music for the film. Laura is now working as a motion graphics animator, photographer and filmmaker under her pseudonym Lana Von Haught.

Special Version for Kids, the most-visited site on the Web for information about health, behavior, and development from before birth through the teen years, commissioned a shorter, snappier version of No Such Thing As Color specifically for children. You can watch the 3 1/2 minute version here:
