About

WE GOT INTO THE NEW YORK POST!

**NEW REWARDS JUST ANNOUNCED**

Check out the rewards to the right! We've added lunch with Emmy nominated actress Lee Purcell, personal greetings from the actors and  YOU get to help us cast our leading lady for the role of Monica! (i.e. Who are the big name actresses you love in movies?  Maybe she'd be the perfect single mom for this role and put that name in our comments section after you pledge.)  Music lovers, you can spend time in the studio with our Music Supervisor!  AND I will SHAVE MY HEAD if we make it to $60K on time!

Let us TEASE you with this early teaser trailer as we search for our leading role Monica!

Hot fun-loving single mom, Monica Robinson, dares to plunge back into the dating game, she turns to her friends, Ally, the pickup artist, Dori, the insecure, overzealous professional match-maker, Jeanie, the petite Puerto Rican 5th wheel with a penchant for bad boys,

Hedda, the alcohol-cure-all-weilding lush, and her own pushy, overbearing mother Tabitha, a former beauty queen, Mrs. America, and Texan socialite for advice.

Sexually frustrated, Monica kisses more toads and devours more chocolate as she ventures through the perils of horrible blind dates and a disastrous whirlwind office romance.  She and her crazy BFFs divulge their innermost and hilarious secrets while high on chocolate cake and find out the perfect orgasm may not mean they found the perfect man.

Chocolate is Not Better than Sex is an independent romantic comedy feature.  Our highly skilled and deeply committed team have years of experience and includes veteran actors and up and comers.  This will be our Director's FIRST feature and we are excited to include you in her journey! Plus you can be involved with helping us find the lead role of Monica!  With you on our team to build this project, we will create an amazing movie!  Plus it's just good karma!

 Cinematographer Peter Villani Reel:

How Kickstarter works: Pledge any amount and choose one of our freaking awesome rewards. At the end of our 30 day Kickstarter campaign, if the combined total of all pledges for our project meets our $60,000 goal, then the credit cards of those who pledge are charged and we receive the funds to make our freaking awesome film. If we don't meet our goal, then the money is not withdrawn from your account and no rewards are provided and we get very sad. If we exceed our $60,000 goal, then the extra funds will be used to make the movie even more awesome. Aside from a 5% Kickstarter fee and a 3-5% Amazon credit card processing fee, all funds raised will be used directly in the production of the film.

Risks and challenges

A note from Director/Producer Aleisha Gore: I have never not finished a project that I have started. I pledge to you that even if I have to eat worms or panhandle or shave my head to do it, I will make this film! It will be done and it will cause laughter to rise up from the depths of even the deeply sullen. I don't promise peace on earth to come from this, but miracles do happen. If I can make YOU and YOU and YOU smile and laugh and FEEL GOOD, then my job will be done. ;-)
