Throghout the career path of producing films, we try to make projects that are capable of attracting a wide audience and that combine quality and commercialization. Last year, we released OLA DE CRÍMENES, a black comedy directed by Gracia Quejereta with Maribel Verdú as the main carácter and the collaboration of Mediaset group, and SIN RODEOS, the latest film directed by Santiago Segura, which has been one of the best releases of 2018 in Spain, collaborating with Atresmedia among others. We will son release ¿QUÉ TE JUEGAS?,  featured by Inés de León, with the collaboration of Movistar+, Leticia Dolera, Amaia Salamanca and Javier Rey as main characters. Currently, the postproduction of PADRE NO HAY MÁS QUE UNO, is ending.

In recent years we have focused on international co-productions, including NIEVE NEGRA (Black Snow) with Ricardo Darín, Leonardo Svaraglia and Laia Costa which was a true box-office earner in 2017 in Argentina, as was also the case with CASI LEYENDAS (Almost Legends) with Diego Peretti, Diego Torres and Santiago Segura. SOLO SE VIVE UNA VEZ (You only live once) with Peter Lanzani, Arancha Martí Martín, Gérard Depardieu, Hugo Silva and Santiago Segura. and the movie starring Belén Rueda NO DORMIRÁS (You won’t sleep) directed by Gustavo Hernández. We have also co-produced, the thriller PERDIDA (Lost), starring Luisana Lopilato and directed by Alejandro Montiel. We have also co-produced the first full-lenght film by Sergio Barrejón, JEFE (Boss) directed by Sergio Barrejón, and ANIMAL.

In the line of work of communications for feature films we try to combine the experience of the managers, as well as having highly qualified personal for each specific Project, according to the individual needs of each of them.
