"This is a film that is all about real people, real problems, and real life, all drawn from our own personal experiences."
Struggle: Even Though Spilled paint is the story of a starving artist, anyone who has faced difficult financial times can relate to the want that Patrick and Helena feel to get out of that world. The two characters can only dream about what they could have. This desire is very common but it comes with the backhand that to fulfill these desires you have to grow up and take responsibility and discipline yourself. This struggle is very well known to a lot of people and the shift towards change and ownership of one’s life comes with a price and often leads us to a new world full of unexpected difficulties. This is accentuated in the story of this series, wherein the protagonist is plunged into a world that resembles are own but is darker and paved with danger and challenges he could never have imagined. Patrick’s life is literally on the line and the struggle is real.
Growth: Facing the issues of discipline and growth is not only Patrick’s own life but that of his relationship as well. Helena believes in Patrick, she wants more just as much as he does but she is willing to put Patrick forward even more than he does himself. This is an issue that a lot of people deal with when they have a partner that doesn’t believe in themselves, their shortcomings get in the way of the potential shared future but the partner bares it for the love they have in that moment. This can be frustrating to live and is rich material for conflict between these two characters as they are both faced with growth; but is this growth necessarily together?
Art: Artwork is the core motif of this series. Patrick’s painting is a forbear of his expression and drive. His art reflects his character, unrefined, eclectic, unorganized but also vibrant and inspired. His best work is of his loving girlfriend, she is his muse and the painting reflects that she is his better half. Love, in a way, is the fuel for his best work but it is fuel for so much more for a lot of people. But Patrick doesn’t see what is right under his nose, a mistake which is so common to anyone who has let someone slip from between their fingers. Will he grasp onto inspiration in all the chaos of the world he is now entering.
Ramirez is the driving antagonist of the show, pushing Patrick to his limits, but as much as he pushes the plot forward the heart of the conflict develops in Helena and Patrick’s relationship. They will have to survive the tasks ahead but will be pushed to the limits exposing the vulnerabilities of themselves and their relationship.
In episode two we crash back to the first of the seven days before the big deadline and catch up on what lead him to fall short of the deadline.
