King Louie Palomo

King Louie is a Vancouver, BC-based independent film producer committed to uncompromising visions that challenge conventional paradigms. He works to encourage dialogue and foster community through producing films and other media forms. King has produced over nine short films which have screened to both local and international film festivals and in the process of finishing two more. He also recently completed his first directorial short film, titled "Nene," starring Filipino comedy veteran actress, Flora Gasser and arthouse films staple, Mercedes Cabral. The project was filmed on location in his hometown in the Philippines.

King Louie is a dreamer. He has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and immerses himself in anything related to media and filmmaking. With full of resolve, he is motivated by his desire to create stories that speak to people in a way that stays with them even after the credits have rolled. King Louie is the ultimate schedule maker, utilizing his organizational skills to keep projects on track and moving forward.

Independent writers, filmmakers, and artists sometimes need help bringing their passion projects to fruition. As a freelance producer, I lend my skills, knowledge, and resources to each and every project in order to best position it for success. My personal guarantee to every client is the consummate professionalism they deserve and a standard of work on par with the most accomplished independent filmmakers of our day. I look forward to collaborating with you.
