Our Story

Mario Ramirez worked as a Location Manager and Producer for 10 years before starting Reel Security Corp.  As a production professional, Mario saw the undeniable need for a security and safety solution that could support the challenging demands of production logistics and schedules.

As President and CEO, Mario quickly established Reel Security as the premier security provider for the entertainment industry in Los Angeles.  Its reputation has since taken the firm to work in nearly all 50 states, leading to permanent offices in Atlanta, New Orleans, New Mexico and most recently London.

With the COVID pandemic shutting down the film industry in 2020, Mario helped the industry return to work, developing COVID safety protocols and working closely with studios and unions in his creation of Reel Health.

It’s Mario’s vision to bring an innovative approach to assisting the television and film industry in meeting its needs in an ever-expanding market.
