Your Creative Source for Content Creation
Based in Los Angeles, La Producción creates documentaries, narratives, music videos, commercials, branded content, and social impact video campaigns.
Our mission is to produce artistic, high-fidelity media that creates a social and cultural impact while elevating underrepresented voices in front of the camera and behind it.
La Producción is led by filmmakers Marcos Nieves and Mario Torres Torres, who are driven by principles of community, inclusion, and intersectionality. They work to provide a platform to amplify diverse voices by working with other creatives and partners.

Producer - Sound Mixer
Mario Torres Torres (he/they) is a Purepecha Indigenous filmmaker and activist based in Tongva Land, Los Angeles, CA. Born in Mexico and immigrating at the age of six has shaped the stories they tell. From a young age they have had a strong passion for filmmaking and storytelling. Sitting around a campfire drinking café de olla and listening to elders pass down their stories sparked their curiosity in the art of storytelling.
Now, they are pursuing a career as a film producer and sound engineer to continue the work of great creatives that push the boundaries of media. Their aim is to provide a restorative platform to dismantle the lack of diversity and amplify representation in visual culture. In 2018, Torres Torres received a B.A. in Television, Film and Media Studies from Cal State LA and is currently a leading member of the Undocumented Filmmakers Collective.
