MindsEye's newest signing is a disciple of Alejandro Iñárritu who's been making films since he was tiny.
Rodrigo had an early start in filmmaking. Thanks to his father’s career in photography, he had a camera in his hands from an early age. He studied film at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, in the University Center for Film Studies CUEC; later, he studied at the New York University NYU, and San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba, so he’s got a solid education.
He began his film career working at Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s production company as a commercial AD, before forming his own Mexico City production company, Central Films.
His ability to seamlessly switch from comedy to emotional storytelling is testament to the perfect, nuanced performances he gets from his cast. And this has been recognised with him picking up Cannes Lions for five consecutive years. Most recently, in 2016, his spot for Tecate beer - Domestic Violence won Rodrigo a silver Lion.
Joining MindsEye marks Rodrigo’s first representation in the UK.
