Alleys is a short dramatic film, about two recently torn apart lovers, Josh and Lani, spending their day contemplating the question…is love truly worth fighting for? It is a story of a young skater, Josh, as he searches for answers in the streets and alleys after a confusing breakup.
Ezra Albarran has started developing the script a few years ago based on a personal experience. This story is important and relatable, as it’s an exploration of true love and the contention it attracts in this fast paced world we call Life.

This is a low budget film that will be about 20-25 minutes in length. We aim to keep expenses for principal photography around $5,000-$7,000 while leaving the rest for post-production expenses. We are aiming to shoot towards early-mid October (2016).
