About Francisco

Most recently Francisco Ordonez served as Co-Producer on the film, IMPERIUM, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Toni Collette. IMPERIUM was released by Lionsgate from Director, Daniel Ragussis, Atomic Features and Tycor International. Francisco is Head of Development at Atomic Features.

Born and raised in Queens, Francisco graduated with a B.A. in Sociology from The City University of New York. He then earned his M.F.A. in Film at the Columbia University School of the Arts, where he was honored as a Film Division Fellow.

Currently, Francisco has been hired to write PACKS, a crime thriller about the rise of designer marijuana across America into a multi-million dollar illegal drug trade.

    Francisco's Pitch Tip: Both story and character in equal measure. For me structure is the interplay between plot and character. Having said that, parse down the pitch so that the story is compelling in the form it's being pitched, which in this case is verbally.
