Who we are

  • Logotipo de Rio negro

Smile y Río Negro

Smile is fascinated by new forms of storytelling. With our experience in the sector, we intend to develop projects that stand out and shine in the audiovisual field.

That’s why we joined Rio Negro, a Mexican production company proficient in the Latin American industry. From this strategic union, we intend to create universal projects of all kinds of genres. Our vision is to seek collaboration between companies and develop stories of different formats.

Leading this new project with Alvaro Weber we have Javier Chinchilla, with a long career in international productions of the most diverse conditions; as well as Matthias Ehrenberg, one of the most commercially successful producers in Mexico. Both complement their abilities to bring exciting content to life under the supervision of the highest quality.
