Marco A. Elorreaga is a native Angeleno, which, even though they are as rare as unicorns, do exist in Los Angeles. He is, first and foremost, a storyteller. He penned his first screenplay at the age of 15 after buying a copy of Final Draft and David Trottier's The Screenwriter's Bible.
Even though accepted to the Tisch School of Arts of Dramatic Writing program at NYU, he decided to forego his admission to avoid indebting himself for the rest of his life. Instead, he graduated from CSUN with a B.A. in English Literature and went into health insurance as a profession. ‘Twas the safe bet.
Yet, he still had that itch for film, so he decided to return to school at Los Angeles Valley College to study film, proper (well, somewhat proper). He worked on several web series (Guides, 2Fur1, Series Regular), sketch comedy videos (Dating Disaster, Pet Peeves), and short films (Fake Pocket Dial, Lost in Time, Demonic Attachment, Playdate). He has written, directed, and produced three of his own short films: His Emily, The Intervention, and Forfeiture.
In late 2017, he decided to invest in new high-end film equipment with the hopes of filming his first feature film in the near future. In the meantime, he decided to legitimize GhettoRig Productions by forming it into an LLC. He doesn’t know what will come of this new business venture, but he hopes to become a conduit for content creation in his community by offering his experience, knowledge and means to other aspiring filmmakers in affordable ways.
