Mexico: Up Next! Ramiro Ruiz

Prepping ‘Museo,’ next pic by ‘Gueros’’ Alonso Ruizpalacios’

Peliculas de Leyenda producer Ramiro Ruiz began his storied career as a line producer on Sam Mendes’ “Jarhead” and as a production manager for David Riker’s “The Girl” and Mexican-U.S. co-production “Mariachi Gringo” by Tom Gustafson. They were demanding shoots where he learned the nitty gritty of filmmaking.

“I think every producer should learn how to line produce and manage a production; get into the trenches, so to speak,” he says.

Majoring in anthropology has also served him well. “I’ve always joked to my students that one has to be an anthropologist, sociologist and psychologist to work on a set,” says Ruiz, who teaches production between shoots at the Universidad de la Comunicacion in Mexico City and has worked on commercials on occasion.

He co-produced Lourdes Grobet’s much-lauded docu “Bering,” and a host of notable pics and docus until he founded his shingle Leyenda in January 2014 from which he co-produced Alonso Ruizpalacios’ Berlinale 2014 Best First Feature awardee “Gueros,” which has amassed a ton of awards across the world.

Gueros” has been a career high for Ruiz, who is now prepping Ruizpalacio’s next pic, “Museo,” a co-production with Panorama Mexico; Catalina Aguilar Mastretta’s (“Las Horas Contigo”) sophomore pic, a romcom set in a high school provisionally titled “Everybody Loves Somebody,” and “Brujeria,” a genre pic by Olallo Rubio.

Ruiz is now overseeing the post-production of coming-of-age drama “Alba,” the anticipated father-daughter themed feature debut of Ana Cristina Barragan, which was featured at BAL Goes to Cannes this year.

The film is a co-production with Isabella Parra of Caleidoscopio Cine of Ecuador, where it was shot.
