SKIN DEEP is an animated short film about an adolescent Black boy navigating complex personal and social issues with an emphasis on colorism, mental health and self-love.

Young Skylar, a Black boy from the rural South, grows up in Los Angeles, California with his grandparents, Willie B and Ola. Throughout the story, Skylar struggles to adjust to his unfamiliar surroundings and is often bullied because of the shade of his skin, southern accent, and his striking features. While alone, Skylar crafts the perfect plan to wash his pain away. During this, he awakens to his true power and the responsibility that comes with being an African American boy in America.
