Hailing from the great plains of Oklahoma, Luis O. Juarez is an enthusiastic and ambitious filmmaker.
He discovered his love for filmmaking after watching the 2012 movie "Argo" and realizing he wanted to be a part of the backbreaking and heart aching process that is making a film. His parents bought him his first camera one Christmas and could not put it down. He made a few videos in high school for English class assignments, some with his future collaborator Devin Hite. During his last two years of high school, he studied Video Production at the Great Plains Technology Center under the teaching of Dan E. Tibbs.
He enrolled at the University of Oklahoma in 2017 to study Creative Media Production at the Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication. While at college, he made a few short films of his own and also was the cinematographer and co-producer for many of his classmates' films. Dissatisfied with formal education, he dropped out of college to start his career in film.
After working a few miserable gigs as a production assistant, he and his former classmate Klein Haley took a chance and produced a film of their own, horror featurette "In the Face of Evil." Having spent years trying to write a feature script of his own which he is yet to finish, he decided to take on an easier task as practice. He wrote, produced, and directed his first formal short film "Fragile and Damaged" in 2022 and finished up post-production in 2023.
