Wesley Alley grew up in a small ranch town in Idaho that no one has ever heard of. Growing up in the country Wesley’s love for the Outdoors, adventure, and excitement was matched only by his love for movies. His father Wesley Alley Sr. had a definitive love for movies and coincidently it was how father and son bonded. Wesley Sr’s spare time was often spent renting movies or at the movie theater with with his son Wesley and
￼￼￼daughter Melissa. Wesley distinctly remembers the day when he knew he was going to grow up to make movies. He was sitting on his dad’s lap watching The Goonies. Wesley’s parents had recently divorced, and like any young child he didn’t understand why he couldn’t see his dad everyday and was having a hard time dealing with that. But, at the moment he was sitting on his father’s lap, watching that movie, he knew everything was fine. Not only was he watching a film about a bunch of kids taking their futures into their own hands, but the escape from reality is what he needed. At that moment him and his father were lost in the adventure on screen. Wesley knew he wanted to make movies like that, movies that affected and changed people’s lives. He wanted to entertain people and give them a temporary escape from life’s problems and demands. Wesley started his career in the entertainment industry very young. He acted in school plays and participated in the community theater. He looked for any opportunity that could get him involved. He was the president of the drama club in high school and after graduating he attended Boise State University for “Performance and Direction”. After Boise State, Wesley ventured to the other side of the country to go to Full Sail University and get his bachelors degree in “Film and Television Production” and onto a master’s degree in Entertainment Business.
Wesley is a Director, Writer, and Producer. He has experience in Movies, short films, Music Videos, Commercials and more. After college, college, and more college, Wesley ventured out into the industry working in the lighting and grip department. He became a union lighting technician in FL and then moved to L.A. and continued his career in Lighting. He then became a member of IATSE local 728, one of the best and most well trained Set Lighting Unions in the world. Wesley worked on big summer block buster movies, huge TV shows, smaller art movies, indy films, little TV shows, pilots, music videos, web series, commercials, etc. These various projects allowed him to gain experience and learn how productions on every level are made. Currently, Wesley is taking the knowledge he has gotten from school, directing his projects, and watching and working on various sets over the years to fuel and push his career as a director.
