Quintero-Castro Studios (Spanish: Estudios Quintero-Castro) is an independent film production group founded in December 27, 2009. It has a distributor which is also a subsidary in YouTube, QuinteroCastroFilms.
Early history (2006-2009)
Originally founded when on production for the short film, Valente Q. Castro's The Ten Commandments, Quintero-Castro Studios has been active since 2006. The aforementioned short was a reenactment using LEGO minifigures, and used the original audio from the original classic biblical-epic The Ten Commandments, directed by Cecil B. DeMille. The short was eventually erased, and another production was filmed, Lego Ma and Pa Kettle: Back on the Farm. The short was also a reenactment of a Ma and Pa Kettle film. The studios built two main sets for the short, the Kettles' town home and their broken-down farm.
As the popular film medium of using LEGOs was growing popular since the late 1990s, Quintero-Castro Studios decided to release its brickfilms on YouTube.
