Faded Neon Films is founded and run by writer/director Charli Whatley + producer and animator Toby Anthonisz.

Faded Neon Films create work that challenges stigmas around ability, age and identity through the stories we tell and the people we collaborate with to tell them. We work in narrative, documentary, music videos and content - and by championing creatives who are underrepresented across the industry, our films are bold, experimental and push the boundaries of style.

Founded by chronically sick and disabled Charli Whatley, and her partner and carer Toby Anthonisz, Faded/Neon is about allowing conflicting ideas exist in the same space and invites us to challenge our internal thinking around who and what has a place on screen and on our sets. 

Faded/Neon plays upon - their experience of the chronically ill body, sometimes well and sometimes sick, two opposite experiences within one identity; their understanding of interdependence and working together to maintain balance in a fluid and intuitive way; their perception that within every team there is a spectrum and acknowledging both ends helps create unity.
