"Dearly Departed," by Zia Films, is a faux documentary-style interviews with spirits in the afterlife whose intertwining stories present startling revelations about life and death.
Zia Film’s two founding partners, Darryl Anka and Tracy Faucher, and their production associates each have over thirty years of experience in producing, special effects design, fabrication, project coordination and production management.
Sadly, Tracy passed away in 2010. However her memory, spirit and vision will continue to guide many of the projects in development that she helped to create, such as “First Horse,” “Shapeshifter” and “Bayou.”
As a writer-producer-director, Darryl shot the feature film “Dearly Departed” which is currently in post-production. As a writer, Darryl Anka has a produced feature film with Nu Image Entertainment, one script optioned by AMI Productions and one script optioned by The Mutual Film Company. In addition, two of Darryl’s scripts, “Ark” and “Alienated” made the top ten finalist list in the StoryPros screenplay contest, with “Alienated” going on to win second place in the comedy genre category.
