About me

Marcelo Grion is an italian-argentine filmmaker. He was born in Dolores, Argentina and moved to Miramar when he was five. He wrote his first script when he was eleven, and since then has always wanted to make films. At the age of 18 he moved to Buenos Aires to formally study film at the prestigious Fundacion Universidad del Cine. Afterwards he wrote, produced, and directed his first short films, “Jaque Mate,” and “Luz de Amor.”

In 1995 he started working on his next big project: “El Extrano.” It premiered in 1997. He then immigrated to the United States, then Italy, then back to the US. In 1998 he started shooting his first feature film, “The Prototype.” It was his first film in english. Fourteen years of hard work at odd jobs raising money to self-fund his film, he finally entered the final stages of post-production for the film in January of 2012.

UPDATE: The Prototype was completed and released in North America in February 25th, 2022 in a limilted theatrical run and in March 8th through many platforms like Amazon, Vudu, Apple TV +, Google play, Directv +.
