After being mentored by Scott Franklin, producer of Black Swan, and Steve Bunnell, formerly of The Weinstein Co., Mancilla produced two documentaries, a few independent features, and entered into the commercial world directly as a line producer. His work has brought him around the world with clients such as Coca-Cola, Citi Group, VICE, Novelis, Pfizer, Huawei, and UNICEF utilizing my multilingual and culturally adaptive skills.
In 2012, Mancilla moved to Los Angeles to develop a company structuring alternate and advanced finance models for low budget feature films. His first film, "The Invitation" written by Matt Manfredi & Phil Hay and directed by Karyn Kusama, was shot in June 2014 and is being strategically positioned for the upcoming festivals including SXSW and markets of 2015. Moving forward, Mancilla hopes to dive into a few more films in 2015 on both the finance and production side.
In the meantime, he continues producing commercials and photo shoots and splits his time between New York and Los Angeles, as well as Paris.
