Storyline

Three kingdoms, floating separately in space, can each see the other nearby kingdoms but have no means to communicate or visit. Each has developed a fanatical obsession for a specific color for clothing, architecture, and even plant life: one blue, one red, one golden. A forbidden inter-kingdom romance and a war of conquest ensues when a means of travel between the kingdoms is abruptly found. Written by Dave Heston <heston@iName.com>

Messy but Brilliant

I have to say that this film was Messy but Brilliant.

My Film lighting instructor worked as a Lamp operator on this film and said that the studio, the actors, the equipment and even the entire crew got drenched in paint, but he had a lot of fun working on it.

I couldn't stop laughing at the characters, the action, everything. It's small films like rainbow war that are made fresh out of the box, brought to the screen and received such a response from the audience.

although it had a small budget, it has imagination, a good story, funny characters and a wonderful message about peace.

I recommend this film to any aspiring young filmmaker who has the imagination that this film was made from.
