Manuel Huerta, Founder

My main love and passion is in telling stories that matter and effect change through film, video, and digital media. What makes me unique as a filmmaker and producer is that I also have several years of experience effectively leading and directing grassroots, community-based advocacy efforts with diverse populations and telling their unique stories. Harnessing my varied skill set as a seasoned producer and director, I work with clients, companies, organizations, and diverse communities to tell powerful, often ignored stories that ultimately effect measurable and equitable positive change. Whether past projects have required an artistic or a multimedia director, I have always had success working in a collaborative manner, fusing the best ideas for any given project.

Trained at the prestigious UCLA Film, Television, and Digital Media program and at Columbia University, my career spans a diverse array of projects that have garnered myriad awards and recognition.
