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.

I can’t even express into words how lucky it was to have such a stellar crew during principal photography for the Birds Dropping movie! Myles Christensen, our talented sound supervisor, was cool as a cucumber the entire weekend despite the 85 degree desert air. Jordan Ferrin was an irreplaceable Assistant Director and without him the shooting schedule would not have moved as smoothly as it did. Thank you for showing up and helping bring our vision to life!

Another great behind the scenes shot of my amazing crew in action for The Escape Plan! Working with Octavio Estrada was efficient and well thought out; every movement, angle and lighting adjustment was important. We are forever grateful for his talents, as he was able to capture the stars of the movie in an aesthetically compelling way. Stay tuned for more as we finish up post production.
