Los Cabos: Dynamo Launches Office in Mexico (EXCLUSIVE)

Mexican producer Juan Uruchurtu to run operation

Dynamo, the leading Colombian production company that has produced such hits as “The Hidden Face” and “Undertow,” and provided production services to such high-profile projects as Netflix’s  “Narcos” and Tom Cruise-starrer “American Made,” has opened offices in Mexico in a bid to further expand its operations, which it has consolidated in New York and Spain.

Company has formed a joint venture with Mexican producer Juan Uruchurtu, who has line produced or produced such projects as Univision-Netflix series “El Chapo,” comedy “El Acorazado,” HBO’s “Sr Avila,” and Clarovideo’s “La Hermandad.”

Uruchurtu will run the Mexico office, which already has a premium content original in development for a leading OTT.

Dynamo is also developing TV series in Spain and Colombia aside from at least two feature films. “With these projects, we are consolidating our presence in Colombia, Spain and Mexico,” said Dynamo CEO Andres Calderon, who is based in New York.

Dynamo has combined digital and traditional media in its upcoming feature film production, “Rock n Cola,” to be distributed by Sony Pictures Int’l Prods in the U.S. and Latin America. The comedy was written and directed by Jorge Ulloa of Touche Films, a co-founder of the wildly popular YouTube channel Enchufe TV, which boasts more than 22 million subscribers.

Since providing production services to “The 33,” the first international project to tap Colombia’s 40% cash rebate, Dynamo has lent its services to other high-profile projects, led by “Loving Pablo,” starring Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, and Claudio Fah’s “Sniper: Ultimate Kill,” starring Billy Zane and Tom Berenger.

Founded in 2006, Dynamo has produced more than 30 feature films and a growing number of television series. Aside from its more mainstream films, Dynamo’s recent arthouse fare include Jaime Osorio’s suspense thriller “Siete Cabezas” in co-production with Caracol TV, Diana Bustamante’s Burning Blue and Rhayuela Cine.

It has also delved into a little-explored genre in Latin America: sci-fi dramas, among them: “Monos” by Alejandro Landes and Hatem Khraiche’s “Orbita 9,” in co-production with Spain’s Cactus Flower and Movistar +.
