Since he was young, Andrès Otero has had a raw passion for telling stories through images. Perhaps it was the double features in the summer at the only theater in town that led him to excel in the arts, earning a Medal of Honor for his dedication to his craft upon graduation. Andrès immigrated to the United States at 18 and studied Film & Media at Hunter College. After graduation, he started his career working as a news predator for the New York Times, NYDaily News and NYPost, followed by a storied career as the first multilingual content producer for Multivu/PRNewswire. Jobs took him across the globe spanning from Denmark to South America, and from the Pacific Northwest to the tip of Africa where Andrès acted as producer, project manager, and creative director. When he’s not globetrotting for work, he's contributing 360-degree content to Google maps. At home, Andrès spends his time with his kids, his dog, and his life-partner, forcing them all to watch the latest films.
"I worked with Andres and his team at Somos Creative to create a promotional video for the Friends of St. Jude Spring Gala this year. He was gracious in helping to explain the process to me, he provided great feedback and ideas for the focus of the video, and was prompt and professional in all of our communications. I will definitely be working with Andres again and would highly recommend him and his team..."

"We really enjoyed working with Andres and the SOMOS team. From the ideation stage to the final product, SOMOS was able to create what we asked for. SOMOS was easy to communicate with, arrived on-time to the video shoot and turned around the edited video in just a few days. We will definitely be using the team again."

“I'm so grateful to have had Andres as "the voice in my ear". From early hours, he made sure to connect with me and made me feel at ease. His realistic and spot-on culture-based approach, feedback, and words of advice definitely helped to have a successful SMT.”
"Are all your producers as good as Andres? He really was fantastic, better than any other producer I've worked with. I'm curious because as I mentioned, we typically work with [competitor] and I wanted to know if Andres was an exception, or if all of your producers match up to his degree of professionalism and message coaching."

"Andres offered to help me out with a last-minute project which was awesome. He was thoughtful and organized in the short lead up to the event. He asked valuable questions and made sure he had my list for content capture. The end product was great and he delivered the edited content the next day. His experience as a content producer was a great help as he didn't require any direction and knew exactly what the client was looking for. Andres is great at what he does and I enjoyed working with him. I would recommend and definitely use him again!"
