"Storm the Chapel" to take MIAMI by storm
The short romantic comedy, Storm the Chapel, had its debut in the Miami’s Design District during the Miami Film Festival week, March 9, 2019, 6 pm
"Storm the Chapel" came together when actress
Athina Klioumi visited the Miami acting studio to train for her new Netflix
series to come, meeting fellow actors and new talent with whom she bonded quickly.
It was there, where she met actor student Oscar Bustillo who had an idea of shooting a scene and this brought them to embark on doing this fun project.
Together they elaborated a nice and fun script and set up the project. As executive directors Athina brought her friend, film director/cinematographer Gabriela Nunez and Oscar brought in the financial support. Many more friends were to join and cooperated with the project.
The music of " Storm the Chapel” was composed & conducted by Eduardo Marturet and recorded by The Miami Symphony Orchestra. New talent Zavier Jacobs composed the main electric guitar theme and contributed to the wall art.
This quirky short film is set in Miami’s art world, and focuses on Greek artist Sophia Papadopoulos, played by actress Athina Klioumi, an adventurous free-spirit who takes on Jack Montaine (Oscar Bustillo)—mild-mannered but passionate, Jack is also exploring what life’s possibilities Miami might offer. Their friends and family show support and love, and fun times—and they REALLY want to be there for the wedding.
Hearts and love take over and win, even if Jack forgets the cakie for Mrs. Papadopoulos. “Where is the Cakie?” and some other issues have to be resolved first as well. At moments it seems complicated, but then…. Who will witness their union? Join Sophia and Jack at the chapel to champion love and
freedom in Miami.
