Personal Quote:

The days of the independent film are numbered. Independents are now going to have to product more of their own product to survive financially instead of relying on smaller distributors to pick up these films for release, now that television pay per view channels will want studio blockbusters. You have to spent at least $1 to $2 million to compete on any level at all. See more »


Had previously worked as an industrial printer, and later an airline pilot. After he had barely survived a major plane crash outside of Cleveland, Ohio, Montoro decided that his next career move was to make movies, and thus was able to start Film Ventures International (FVI) through private capitalists in Atlanta, Georgia.
