Everything that can happen when you share a piece of chocolate cake with someone.
Chocolate Cake is a story of a couple shown in real-time, and in flashback/forward. The theme and story is about love/putting yourself out there/what could be if you take a chance. Our digital world makes it easy for people to not knowingly become disconnected from face to face interactions. But what if one of those interactions could change your life. We want to show the funny and intimate moments of everything that can happen when you share a piece of chocolate cake with someone (cake in your teeth, choking/heimlick maneuvers), as well as the reality of how that tracks back to a relationship between the two (fun dates, fights). The hook at the end is we eventually learn that it's the couple's first date, and we caught glimpses of what the future could hold for them.
Our team is excited to confirm actor Brandon Jay McLaren as our lead, who you might know from Girlfriends Guide to Divorce or She's The Man, as well as social marketing specialists in Edmonton including Kirby Pamela, radio host at 100.3 The Bear.
The Cherry On Top1 of 8
As Tim feeds Jenny the last cherry from the cake, she chokes. This cuts to the montage of bad times in the relationship, where we don't quite know if they will get through this. It's dark, angry, emotional as they scream at each other in the shot.
