When Emilio Torriente was 5 years old, his father would gather his family and make them watch movies on the weekend. His father would take him and his siblings to the local movie rental store and he would go nuts picking movies. He loved watching movies. At that time I hated watching movies, specially really long epic movies like the God Father, the good, the bad, and the ugly, and many other Clint Eastwood/Robert De Niro movie he can rent. That was my weekend and that was my life when I was younger. Sometimes, when he ran out of movies to watch he would let me, my brother or my sister select a movie, which was pretty fun. We would select king fu movies, or just watch animation movies we wanted to see. Every weekend Emilio’s mother would help black out the windows with curtains or comforters so that the living room mirrored a movie theater. The living room would completely be pitched black, the only light would be from the television. These were my first findings as to what a story was. Unbeknownst to me at that time I would want to direct. When I was 15 my sister landed a job at a movie rental store called Marquee Video, in Woodhaven Queens. We had the privilege to rent free movies whenever we wanted and so I took advantage of that and saw as many movies as I could. Throughout the years that she worked there I saw hundreds of movies, and one day I said to myself this is what I want to do. I want to tell stories, I want to create stories, and the rest is history.
