Scintillating, salacious and, made-in-Miami, 'Taste It' is an outrageous comedy about living it up in a down economy.
"A disillusioned ivy-leaguer discovers a passion for cooking when the Recession brings an end to his cushy career in finance."
Taste It, starring John McGlothlin and Francesca Frigo (Playboy's Ms. August 2010) is a passion project. Lifelong friends and film enthusiasts, Zack Weil and Adam Chefitz began writing the screenplay over three years ago as a Hollywood spec script. When the Recession hit, they saw an opportunity, both for the story and for an independent production.
From 2009-2010, the Miami natives bankrolled the project through the early stages of development, producing a promotional trailer and then a 30 minute short film, I am Successful (2010), based on the original screenplay. These early works were well received and it was apparent the project was worthy of further investment.
Gambling heavily on creative talent and determination to see this project through, Zack and his fiancee, Mary Olszewska, founded Two of Us Productions in early 2011 with a mission to produce high-quality, digital micro budget films. Taste It would be their first and in the Spring of 2011 it was time to put up or shut up.
Zack and Mary enlisted South Florida film and television producer Gregory Harden and recruited an extremely tight-knit, all local crew. With the team wearing many hats, principal photography took place in Adam and Zack's hometown of South Miami for three weeks this past April. Production proved to be an immense success and the project is currently in post-production, on track for a holiday release.
The Kickstarter campaign was launched to raise essential finishing funds. All contributions to Taste It will support sound design, scoring, graphics/titling and color correction to give this unique and timely indie comedy its due. Contributions will also help cover marketing and film festival submission costs.
Thank you so much for your ongoing enthusiasm and support, and please consider supporting our Kickstarter campaign today!
