MEET OUR FOUNDER
"Storytelling is a form of healing. A person's story can make you stronger." - Oscar Armando
Oscar Armando, founder of 27, is a film and television director, producer, writer, and actor. He loves bringing purpose-driven stories to life. His gift for directing and producing film and television shows is curated to be nurturing to the commercial, motion picture, and television show audiences. Oscar owns and works with modern-media production studios that deliver phenomenal stories and create global awareness through high-impact films and television content designed to entertain, inspire, and bring awareness to audiences through captivating stories by storytellers from all over the world.
Oscar began his journey by devoting, dedicating, disciplining, and working himself to direct, produce, write, edit, and deliver original content for use across multiple platforms within the film, TV, entertainment, social media, podcast, live, and content streaming landscape. Throughout the years, Oscar has worked with the best while working on a range of projects/deliverables across multiple content releases, experiential, virtual, and communication platforms by collaborating with phenomenal creative teams to deliver captivating original content.
27's goal is to impact the entertainment industry via community, mentorship, diversity, and professionalism. We do this through our commitment to our craft, clients, and the communities we serve. Since 2016, we have been incorporating profits from the projects we take on to go towards non-profit organizations that are focused on environmental and humanitarian needs. 27 is an active supporter of non-profits and charities such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation Los Angeles, Mutual Aid LA, and is adding more programs and organizations from around the world as we venture through life's journey.
Our founder, Oscar Armando, stumbled upon a book called “The Journey Home” by Radhanath Swami. The author tells a story about Mother Teresa in his book. Oscar found himself doing research late one night and was inspired by the work of Mother Teresa who devoted her life to helping those in need. This is what inspired him to ensure that all of his projects and the projects we work on donate 10% - 15% of net profits to the greater good of organizations such as the ones listed above.
Previously, Oscar helped build and worked with a non-profit company where 20% of all of his production companies' income was used to help the organization and its benefits.
We currently volunteer and work alongside non-profits such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Mutual Aid LA, Ground Game LA, POWER, and more.
Oscar often finds himself teaching emerging filmmakers what he has learned while running operations at his film/television production studio, operations of Oscar (The Academy) qualifying film festivals, and the knowledge he has gained from working various roles in film and television such as Director, Technical Director, Script Supervisor, Producer, Line Producer, UPM, Grip, Gaffer, G&E, Production Assistant, Assistant Director, Director of Photography, Camera Operator, 1st Assistant Camera, 2nd Assistant Camera, DIT, Casting Director, BTS Unit, Boom Operator, Sound Mixer, and many other positions on and off set.
"We are always learning and growing together to create a phenomenal outcome in our films. I am grateful for all the skills, talent, and knowledge I have been able to learn and share with others thus far. Forever learning. Forever innovating. Forever Creating." - Oscar Armando
