Ortega attended film school at the Universidad del Cine in Buenos Aires.
His cinema work has been well received by film critics. Diana Sanchez said, "With only two feature films under his belt, Luis Ortega is already considered one of Argentina’s more impressive and original directorial voices. His first feature, Black Box, stood apart from the social critiques that characterized the films of his Argentine contemporaries."
