Ortega attended film school at the Universidad del Cine in Buenos Aires.

He wrote the screenplay for his feature film Black Box when he was nineteen years old.[1]

His cinema work has been well received by film critics. Diana Sanchez said, "With only two feature films... 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."[2]
