Marcelo Grion is an Italian-Argentine filmmaker. He was born in Dolores, Argentina and moved to Miramar when he was five. He wrote his first script when he was eleven, and since then has always wanted to make films. At the age of 18 he moved to Buenos Aires to formally study film at the prestigious Fundacion Universidad del Cine. Afterwards he wrote, produced, and directed his first short films, "Jaque Mate," and "Luz de Amor."

In 1995 he started working on his next big project: "El Extrano." It premiered in 1997. He then immigrated to the United States, then Italy, then back to the US. In 1998 he started shooting his first feature film, "The Prototype." It was his first film in English. Fourteen years of hard work at odd jobs raising money to self-fund his film, he finally entered the final stages of post-production for the film in January of 2012. The film is expected to be finished by 2013.

Marcelo Grion has been financing the film himself working as a waiter in 2 restaurants everyday since 1998 and investing every tip he makes everyday in the production of his film. In 2007 He filed for bankruptcy and has been slowly recovering. The budget of the film is well over 500.000 dollars. Two of his friends have also invested in the film: fellow argentine Juan Antonio Devoto has invested 100.000 dollars and retired italian- american pianist Felice Palermo has invested 30.000 dollars. Marcelo wants quality work and he is willing to pay for it himself even if it takes 10 more years - or better find finishing funds.

The Prototype: A government agent stumbles upon an alien conspiracy to conquer earth. Using a blue liquid made by the aliens to make soldiers stronger, he becomes The Prototype-the only hope for mankind.
