Company Snapshot

Mexican cinema is undergoing a new Golden Age with a wave of internationally-acclaimed movies, such as Y tu mamá también and Amores perros, backed by a new group of Mexican filmmaking talent. Behind the scenes are entrepreneurs Carlos and Alejandro and their company, Ollin Studio, the most cutting-edge post-production and visual special effects studio in Mexico. Armed with Alejandro’s experience launching several successful technology startups and Carlos’ creative vision, this gifted duo are pioneers in this industry previously unknown in their country.

Already the #1 leader in post-production and visual effects in Mexico, and a recognized leader throughout Latin America, Ollin is ready to take its services even further and possibly all the way to Hollywood. It has developed proprietary technology that allows US-based production houses to work in real time with its animators in Mexico. In 2009, Ollin Studios won an Oscar for “Best Visual Effects” for its work on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
