About The President:

Mario Ramirez, President of Reel Security Corp., comes from a TV & Film background with over 20 years of Location Management and Production experience. While attending film school at San Diego State University, Mario studied writing and directing, winning Best Film at the Los Angeles Summer Arts Film Festival in 1994.


Putting himself through college, Mario began working at the San Diego Film Commission, gaining vast knowledge about filming logistics in a host city. His years at the San Diego Film Commission made for an easy transition into the Locations department for local production. Mario worked in location management for many years at Stu Segal Productions and various production companies in San Diego, Los Angeles, Colorado and Las Vegas.


Shortly thereafter, Mario continued on in production management and producing. He has produced a television pilot, a documentary and completed two feature scripts. Over his production years, Mario found a gaping need for efficient, effective, reliable and trustworthy security companies. Indeed, Mario says that he had never hired a security company that he didn’t then fire. Although he admittedly held companies to high standard, he felt he simply could not find a security firm that made the already strenuous job of production management any easier. Indeed, for him and his colleagues, he found security management and reliability was often one of the biggest frustrations.


It was in 1999 that Mario decided to start his own security company: One that would focus strictly on the needs of production and would work as a true asset to producers and Location Managers.


Mario’s vast production experience and location management background gave him perspective of all the challenging demands a Locations Manager faces on each production; Everything from finding and securing locations to arranging all the necessary vendor support to ensure a successful production. These are not small feats and yet, they are challenges faced every day by Locations Professionals. Mario has made it his goal, to help ease a location mangers already strenuous job and assist in efficient and seamless security management.
