Travis and Tabitha: A Film About Creatives
When circumstances turn two lost people into roommates, their makeshift relationship forces them to make profound decisions on what they want to do with the rest of their life.
Travis and Tabitha is an independently financed dramedy about a black 26 year old failed fashion designer (Tabitha) and a black 30 year old aspiring cook (Travis) who out of necessity become reluctant roommates on the Southside of Chicago. Their makeshift relationship forces Tabitha to rekindle her passion and Travis to confront his past.
It’s a contrast between the grittiness of the Southside of Chicago with the beauty of two young people finding the passion in themselves and each other. That moment when someone young must make a decision about their life and write their own story instead of living the one given to them.
To make it plain, Travis and Tabitha is a movie about how relationships really happen, not the fairy tale version that is depicted in so many other screen love stories. But real relationships that come as a result of us bumping into each other while we rush off to do whatever we ‘think’ we’re supposed to be doing with our lives. This movie also celebrates an audience of people who are young and looking for new definitions for their lives instead of the definitions given to us and the chaos, disappointment and enlightenment that entails.
The movie also doubles as a fashion film as Tabitha’s sense of ‘inexpensive’ haute couture highlights the modern day young fashionista who insists on not dressing like the environment around them.
