Video Editor/ Cinematographer/ Colorist Film Camera/ Pro Audio Equipment----------------- ---------Ruben Olvera was born and raised in the city of San Ysidro, a district of San Diego immediately north of the U.S.-Mexico border. Like many in the area, he grew up in a bustling Catholic household, where conservative views on life, love and marriage left him feeling creatively stifled. Luckily, he was able to find an escape in the arts, pursuing passions for filmmaking, choral singing and acting throughout his early education.------------------ ---------After graduating high school, he attended California State University Northridge where he stumbled upon the art form that would become his true love—documentary filmmaking and editing.----------------- -----------Through the genre, he’s grappled with life’s big questions, examining not only his struggles with his sexual identity, but also how he began to reinvent his own morals free from the influence of family.------------ ----------When he’s not exploring these topics in his personal work, he helps coordinate media and projects for reality TV, dabbles in freelance video editing and sings with the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus.----------- Check out www.eviltortoise.com

Ruben was so helpful! He made sure everything was good and was able to meet me at times that were convenient for me. Would definitely recommend!

Easy to communicate - gear spotless. Would lend to Ruben again.

Great dude, knows his stuff when it comes to cameras!

He was super accommodating, helpful, caring and polite. Went out of his way to help me. Highly recommended!

Best guy ever, if you don't know about the camera he is willing to give you instructions on how to get the best results out of your production..
