“Solo Orange” is inspired by the life of John Van Bergen who died unexpectedly in early 2018. The film’s goal is to give audiences an internal and external perspective on an individual who is dealing with the effects of anxiety and depression. The movie deals with mental health and suicide and is suggested for audiences no younger than High School age.
The film is directed by Isaac F. Davis, a current Senior at the College of W&M. Both John and Isaac were very close friends since they met at Williamsburg Christian Academy in fifth grade. John had an exceptional eye for film and media distribution. John and Isaac had planned to pursue a career in film together.
Produced by the students of William and Mary “Solo Orange” is the first short film produced in conjunction with a professional film production studio. Completely written, directed, edited and distributed by William and Mary students “Solo Orange” strives to show it’s surrounding community what students with a vision are capable of.

“Solo Orange’s” lead actor is first time actor Gunnar Frerotte who is also a current Senior at The College of William and Mary. Gunnar is joined by actor Francis Edemobi (Who’s now starred in 3 films directed by Isaac F. Davis), Karissa McDonald a current sophomore at the college, and Xavi Soto Burgos who is a well known actor in the William and Mary theater community.
We asked Isaac what was the meaning behind the name “Solo Orange”and here is what he told us: “The name Solo Orange developed from two things. The “Solo” part came from the isolation and loneliness someone feels when they are going through the different waves of anxiety and depression. “Orange” directly relates to John. When I was going through a booklet of artwork Peter & Jamie (John’s parents) made of John’s artwork…it dawned on me… the color orange was very prevalent. I remember John had talked about the color orange before. I decided to ask Jamie if orange was Johns favorite color. She told me, “It was really funny because ever since John was a kid he always wanted to paint his room orange, but we never let him.” That’s when I knew the film would be named Solo Orange.”
