Inspired by William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Verona is the story of two young lovers separated by their rival fraternities.
Set in a small college town wherein young men are groomed for corporate success in All-American hyper competitive fashion, Verona presents the fate of star-crossed lovers in a society that condemns the very nature of their love.
Directed by Laurie Lynd (Breakfast with Scot), Verona features star actors known from DeGrassi, All My Children, The Best Years, Paradise Falls, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Queer As Folk and more. This post-modern retelling of the greatest love story ever told brings to light the homophobic/homo-erotic dual nature of fraternity life, its perks and perils.
Verona was shot as something of a calling-card, to pave the way for public, private and corporate interest in a full-length feature film version. The project is one of passion for all those involved, hoping to present the nature of love in its truest form – and it shows.

A director, producer, photographer and musician, Spanish artist Juanma Carrillo is a jack of all trades. He has been working in the audiovisual world since 2000, moving between avant-garde films and video art.
His short movies and video creations have been screened at film festivals all around the world and in cultural centers such as the Andalusia Film Library, the New York Queens Museum, the London Barbican Center and La Casa Encendida in Madrid.
Out of all of Carrillo’s varied works, his 2012 short film Scaffolding is easily one of the most acclaimed. A touching slow-burn meet-cute, the 14-minute film focuses on the tentative flirtation that builds between two next door neighbors.
Scaffolding follows Eduardo (Domingo Fernández), a somewhat snobby and generally grumpy journalist, and David (Paco Blázquez), a shy and sensitive young literature student. The two men are neighbors in a building under maintenance. Their tiny balconies are side-by-side, which affords each of them little privacy. But maybe that’s not such a bad thing? For six months they have never greeted each other… until the appearance of a scaffold which will uncover unexpected reactions in each one.
A heartwarming hit on the LGBTQ+ film festival circuit when it first debuted, Scaffolding is now available on Dekkoo.
