“Color Blinded” is the story of a beautiful black woman named Melanie Welles (Luella Hill), who has been in a relationship with a white man, Dave Morely (Luke Vitale), for six months. The relationship was fine until one day when Melanie’s best friend, Tess (“Hollywood Shuffle’s” Verda Bridges), plants seeds of doubt about the success of interracial relationships in her mind. This leaves Melanie wishing that she could be sure that Dave really loved her. The next morning, Melanie wakes up shocked to discover she has become a beautiful blonde (Dani Leon). After a frantic visit to a skin doctor and getting thrown out, she visits Dave at work. While there, she sees various beautiful women flirting with him, and him flirting back. Not recognizing her, he immediately starts coming strongly onto her. She doesn’t tell him who she is, and introduces herself as “Ivory Snow.”
What follows is one charade after another as Melanie continues to “see” Dave in her ultimate disguise, determined to find out if beauty and race dictates the direction of the heart. She begins to experience reverse discrimination and starts making some ugly discoveries about herself along the way.
Color-Blinded is the first film from Pirromount to utilize digital technology in its newly acquired editing facility in North Hollywood. The movie took six months to produce and over a year in post production, since Mark Pirro edited (utilizing Adobe Premiere 4.2 on a Windows based system), looped, recorded the foley (utilizing Sound Forge 4.0), and composed the score (utilizing Orchestrator Plus – under the name “Marky Elfman”). The movie has won three awards, including B-Movie Theatre award for best supporting actress for a phenomenal performance given by Verda Bridges.
