Producers to Watch: Rodrigo Bellott
Rodrigo Bellott first came to our attention in 2003 when producer Ara Katz, retained our services to create the best strategy for finding international and domestic distribution for Rodrigo’s debut feature Sexual Dependency, a La Ronde type film which begain in a small town in his native Bolivia to New York City. Since then, Rigo has produced and or directed 4 features. When Steven Soderbergh was casting Che, he came to Rodrigo for help and afterward encouraged him to create a casting company which has served the industry very well as the first such company in Bolivia if not in all of Latin America. However, that has not kept him from creating his own projects and in September he will reside 6 months in Amsterdam where he will be developing his next project as a fellow of The Binger Institute.
He is coming to L.A. next week for the Outfest’s DGA screening of Contracorriente (Undertow) which he cast.
