Help 'Alleys' Come to Life

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).

Donations start at $5 and any amount you can contribute makes a huge difference. We have an incredibly talented cast and crew that plans to create an aesthetically beautiful and touching story for all to enjoy!

Hello Alleys Fam!

Happy official Fall and almost Halloween! I can't believe how this year continues to fly by. I wanted to update all of you on some exciting news. Alleys officially got distribution on a streaming online platform called OPPrimeTV, where we can start to monetize off of the film! It's a great exposure opportunity for all of us and now we have a place/link to send others to, especially those who haven't seen it yet.

Here is the link you should share moving forward:
(let me know if you have any issues with it) Please share around, get the word out and this way we can track all people/traffic we bring to the site. It's a monthly $2.50 subscription to watch and support our film or you can guide people to the Kalliste Zoe website to order a hard DVD copy for $10:
(All proceeds go towards festival submissions and paying back expenses/deferred talent payments/etc.) Thank you for being patient on receiving your own hard copy. We should have those for you soon!

We also have an international licensing deal in the works so we can potentially sell Alleys over seas! Ezra and I have lots in motion, so please let us know if you have any questions and I look forward to seeing what future success may come from this film ;)

It's been such a dream since the premiere event! We still can't believe the turn out and success of the evening. Thank you again to those of you who really helped us push and promote the event so we could pack the house the way we did! It truly was an unforgettable experience and another special thank you goes to Elizabeth Harding for being the amazing behind the scenes videographer, as she captured some special moments.

We are in no way done with pushing Alleys, as we have already started festival submissions, and we are happy to announce that we have our first official acceptance into the CineArtistry film festival on August 12th! Please help us keep up the momentum by liking and following us on social media, your support is greatly appreciated and irreplaceable.

Hello Alleys Supporters!

Hope you all are doing well. We officially had our private cast and crew screening party to watch the final edit of the film and so far the responses were unbelievably exciting and positive! We quickly went back into post to adjust a few moments per our DP's request, but other than that we are ready to premiere in July and start pushing this beautiful film into festivals. We want to sincerely thank you all again for being a part of our journey and generously believing in us as artists; we seriously couldn't have done it without you!

We are officially ending the GoFundMe Campaign, but are still accepting and open to additional donations; all proceeds will go towards festival submissions, so if you feel like making another contribution or if you haven't made one yet and would like to help Alleys reach as many big screens as possible, please contact me directly at: We can arrange a donation through PayPal so no % is taken out for GoFundMe.

There is still so much more work to do with Alleys, as we greatly want to get this in front of the right industry people so everyone involved with this film from the crew to the talent will get their shot at some amazing exposure and recognition. Everyone contributed an important element to the story and we are forever happy with the aesthetic results! Thank you!!!

Wow it's all been an exciting blur since we committed and launched forward with 2 shooting days for Alleys on Feb. 14th and 15th! We have one more pick up day coming soon on March 11th and can't wait to start editing away. Thank you all again for the support and being a part of this film journey with us. We used all the current funds raised for the 2 principal photography days and would appreciate any additional support as we move into post production. Every donation counts and there is none too small to help us accomplish our filmmaking dreams. Enjoy this photo slideshow of some behind the scenes moments of the amazing Alleys crew at work!
