Marcos Efron was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and raised in Houston, Texas. After earning a business degree from the University of Texas at Austin, Marcos worked as an investment banker in New York but eventually chose to tackle more creative endeavors and moved to Los Angeles. While working as a studio executive, Marcos began directing commercials and music videos for artists like Jewel and The Fates. After his evocative short film "Common Practice" played the Sundance Film Festival, Marcos left the executive world behind to focus full time on developing a slate of film and TV projects. His feature directorial debut was Studiocanal's "And Soon The Darkness" starring Amber Heard, Karl Urban and Odette Annable. Marcos has gone on to work for and/or sell projects to Sony Pictures Television, A&E, Fox and others.
Marcos recently finished the original feature film "Last Night on Earth" starring Leven Rambin ("Hunger Games"), Jake McLaughlin ("Quantico"), Shane West ("Gotham") Dee Wallace ("E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial") and Sohvi Rodriguez ("Animal Kingdom").
The film will be released in 2024.
His third feature film ("Pearl") goes into production in late 2023 in Texas.
