3:13

Posted: Updated:

Movie making can be a tough process. For two South Florida filmmakers, it's a labor of love. In "3:13," David Jaure and Paul Alexandro confront homelessness head-on.

The subject matter may be heavy, but the project brought these Miami-based brothers nothing but joy.

"3:13" is one man's story of how easy it is to fall through the cracks and wind up losing everything.

For writer-director David Jaure and his brother, Paul Alexandro, who stars in the film, it was a story that had to be told.

David Jaure: "Homeless people are not born this way. They all have a family. They have a brother, a sister, a mother, and a lot of people look at them like aliens like they're nothing like nobodies, and that's what we're trying to create here this type of awareness."

David cast Paul in the lead role, which led to some role reversal.

Paul alexandro: "You know he's my little brother so I've always been like you know this second father figure. I've always you know yelled at him and this time he's on the set yelling at me telling me what to do so it was special."

Paul got some extra help with his character from an unexpected source during the filming.

Paul Alexandro: "I had a homeless guy take me to you know around the corner from the set and show me where he slept, 'Lay down lay down so you feel it so you feel where I'm sleeping.'"

David didn't cut his big brother any slack when the cameras were rolling.

Paul Alexandro: "He made me go through trash cans and everything. I would assume Robert Deniro would clean up. They would clean up trash cans for Robert Deniro put fake bananas and stuff I got trash right out of the real thing."

The movie was mostly shot at night on the streets of Miami. You might not recognize the Magic City when you see it, and that's the point.

David Jaure: "You won't see too much of that. It looks like Miami. It's actually we had a lot of response in festivals with that, they lived in Miami but they didn't know we shot in Miami which was something that they loved."

"3:13" is currently making the rounds of the festival circuit, winning awards, getting great reviews and helping the brothers accomplish their goal.

David Jaure: "I want to do this. I want to continue to do this from here to the last day where I can continue to help the homeless."

    Big, bouncing, beautiful butts: that's what pop culture is currently obsessed with. I can't blame people, though. I mean, I get it. I love JLo's luscious curves, Kim Kardashian's arguably more-than-ample derriere, Miley Cyrus' terrific, tail-twerking ways; I'm even warming up to Nicki Minaj's booty-popping song and video, "Anaconda."
