Candy Apple Red

Across six decades, seven strangers share one thing in common - they’re all the keepers of a lost soul, searching for a home - a Candy Apple Red Fender telecaster.


From its birth in California in 1963, the guitar travels across borders and cultural revolutions, falling into the hands of a spectrum of owners, who each imprint their stories upon its strings. The Candy Apple Red bears witness to broken hearts, shattered dreams and the struggle for fulfilment. It plays to an audience of none in teenage bedrooms, the pulse of a crowd in sticky-floored venues and all that’s in between. 


Candy Apple Red is a love story, an instrument intertwined with its player, symbolising resilience, hope and a beautiful catalyst to dreams. But amidst the turmoil of changing hands, will the guitar ever fulfil its destiny to grace the legendary stages that it was made for? Will it be reunited with the player that cherishes it the most? And in the end, does the owner play the guitar or does it play them? 

The cast for Candy Apple Red will be made up of both actors and musicians, brought together by their love of guitars and the musical eras the narrative embodies. 

The score for the soundtrack will be composed by the Youtube guitar community, creating an amazing musical backdrop to the film and simultaneously a vast marketing opportunity.
