the film


"Ravishing Raspberry," a mixed media animation, takes a glimpse into the life of Nyesha, a young woman desperate to look her best for a girls-night-out.

An empty make-up case and a popular shade of lipstick, "Ravishing Raspberry," leads Nyesha to make a critical choice that leaves her evening more memorable than she could ever imagine.

The story is a commentary on the materialistic mindset shared by many of today's youth and how it is fueled by the media, music videos and advertising.
