Kalliste Zoe Productions is excited to announce that the Chocolate Cake film (2017) is complete and officially up on IMDb!

Producing this project has truly been an enjoyable experience and working with the ever so talented Brittney Grabill has been nothing but a sweet delight! We were offered a $10,000 film grant through Story Hive with the Telus Company’s support and we were lucky enough to film this project abroad in Canada.

The Chocolate Cake story is takes place on a first date, that brings young Jenny and Tim together for a slice of chocolate cake. As their connection grows, just like with each layer of cake, they develop a deeper and richer connection. As they share the cake and more about each other, love reveals a potential path for the two of them, as well as an inevitable roller coaster of emotions. The only question left is, will they take a chance on love?

Stay tuned for more updates as there will be a voting period in February where you can help support our film to win awards and prizes for future endeavors with the film. You can follow the progress on the official website: Chocolate Cake Film

Is Love Truly Worth Fighting For?

Alleys1

Kalliste Zoe Productions is onto the next movie project, developing a short dramatic film,  Alleys, about two recently torn apart lovers, Josh and Lani, spending their day contemplating the question…is love truly worth fighting for?

Ezra Albarran, the director and writer, started developing the script a few years ago based on a personal experience. This story is important and relatable, as it’s an exploration of true love and the contention it attracts in this fast paced world we call Life. We follow the story of a young skater, Josh, as he searches for answers in the streets and alleys after a confusing breakup.  He explores an ever changing life and shift of notions that nullify the thought, “Love is all you need”.

With your support and help, we will be able to make this story come to life! We need to cover basic expenses for hiring the crew, renting the equipment, transportation, locations, props, wardrobe and food. This is a low budget independent film that will be about 20-25 minutes in length. We aim to keep expenses for principal photography around $5,000-$7,000 while leaving the rest for post production expenses. We are aiming to shoot towards the end of this September, early October (2016).

Please help support our funding campaign so we can create an aesthetically beautiful and touching story for all to enjoy! Go Fund the Alleys Movie

The last Kalliste Zoe Production, Birds Dropping , is in the final production phases (Color Correction, Music Design and Composition) and will soon be released this Fall 2016 at a premiere event in Los Angeles, CA.
