Director Biography - Alex Montilla

I've been making movies since high school. When my friends and I took over the morning announcements, we saw an opportunity to make short films for a captive audience...and by that, I mean an audience that literally HAD to watch; the entire school was held hostage by our silliness. Out of necessity, I learned the basics of filmmaking: acting, writing, directing, editing, visual effects, name it; I was the Robert Rodriguez of morning announcements.

All of these skills came in handy when I attended the University of Miami's film school. After making the leap to Los Angeles, I've continued to hone my craft by working in the editing room for studio films like "Hot Tub Time Machine" and "The Muppets", on the sets of films like "The Hangover Part III" and as a Producer for ESPN. All the while, I continue to write, direct and edit my own films.

I made "Broke Up" as a way to use some new gear I bought for my iPhone. It was meant as a simple experiment, but I was pleased enough with the results that I figured I'd share!
