Armando fulfilled one of his personal goals when he was chosen for the Flip This House program on the A&E television network. With his dynamic and independent personality as the focus, the show became one of the most popular do-it-yourself programs on cable and earned him millions of loyal fans in the United States and around the world. That experience and his unique industry insights have inspired him to investigate other ventures on television and in film.
Another of his longtime aims was establishing his hometown of San Antonio as the Third Coast for movie production in the United States, expanding production of feature films beyond the traditional centers in Los Angeles and New York.
Armando Montelongo Productions LLC
Armando Montelongo Productions is the newest venture for the Armando Montelongo Companies. Its goal is to produce feature films in San Antonio for nationwide release.
The company’s initial project, a feature film called Mission Park , is in post-production in San Antonio, Texas. The screenplay for Mission Park was written by Bryan Ramirez, a San Antonio native who was hired originally to work in the company’s video production department. Ramirez also is directing the film.
Armando Montelongo is the executive producer of Mission Park, and actor/producer Douglas Spain from HBO’s Band of Brothers is serving as the project’s producer. Spain has won multiple acting awards.
