TULSA, Okla. — It’s a wrap! Feature film “Alejandro” officially completed shooting schedule, according to the Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts & Culture.

The production captured scenes in Tulsa and the surrounding areas in the last few months.

Sam Ojo moved to Tulsa from Salt Lake City five years ago. "Alejandro" is the first project Ojo produced.

“When I moved to Tulsa my goal was to make this film a reality here," Ojo said. "I was able to hire local crew, and utilize our incredible locations."

The storyline centers around the character Alejandro, who is about to be sentenced for a crime he did not commit. Then, he meets a stranger named Lucas who steps in to represent him.

The character of Alejandro is portrayed by Joshua Pineda and Sam Ojo appears in his own project as the character Lucas. Pineda and other actors involved in the film were cast locally.

The Oklahoma Film and Music Office was helpful with on-set COVID-19 safety protocol.

“We’re grateful Sam and his production team were able to work with our office and utilize our services to connect with local health and safety resources,” said Yousef Kazemi, outreach and production manager of the Oklahoma Film and Music Office.

After the editing is completed, Ojo's goal is to submit the movie to film festivals and work on getting distribution.

“My hope is this film will inspire audiences and will also help build positive content around Tulsa,” Ojo said.
