At the age of 24 Francisco Ovalle produced a live show “Aquatic Cuban Ballet” in the city of Mar Del Plata, Argentina which won “The Star of The Ocean” award for that year; the most prestigious award in Argentina, equivalent to Argentina’s “Martin Fierro” award / Oscars in the USA. The show was so successful that Francisco was able to strike a distribution deal for “Aquatic Cuban Ballet” with the biggest Television Network in Argentina ATC (Argentinean Public Television).

A year later his father bought a TV Cable company called “Cablehogar Aereo” where Francisco was in charge of producing local TV shows for 2 years.

After “Cablehogar Aereo” was sold Francisco was hired to work as a Marketing and Publicity Manager for the biggest Cable Television Company in Argentina CABLEVISION S.A. There he was in charge of striking distribution deals for CABELVISION SA.’s 6 local TV Channels and generating content for the Company’s Magazine distributed and covering 18 major cities in the Argentina's Santa Fe Province.

At the same time, Francisco launched and planned the marketing strategy for the first DSL system in 21 Argentinian cities.

After arriving in Los Angeles, Francisco dove into film and commercial acting, landing leading roles in multiple feature films working with stars like ARMAND ASSANTE, VINCENT CASSEL, ROBERT MIANO, ERIC ROBERTS, in ZZ TOP- BILLY GIBBONS’ music video “PERFECTAMUNDO” and many national commercials.

With his vast years of experience in the film and TV business both behind and in front of the camera Francisco, along with his partner Nikki Bohm, decided to found Crystal Pantera Productions, which produced short films “Masho’s Descent”, a Pilot for a new International Comedy TV series and a Sizzle Trailer for a Grindhouse Feature Film.

Francisco’s passion lies on producing projects that challenge the audience and push boundaries in the presentation of realism and emotional depth whilst sending strong and powerful messages of change to the world.

Besides acting and producing, FRANCISCO has written two scripts: a short film “VIAJE AL NORTE” (Trip to the north) and a Feature Film “INDISCRETIONS”. Both are due for production in 2017/2018 and will be shot on location in Argentina, Brazil and Chile.
