Hecho en Cine is a boutique production company that has produced a variety of visual products from concept to screen. Our creative inspiration comes from unique stories in places you’ve probably never heard of.
Formed in 2005, Hecho en Cine’s innaugural project, Luz del Mundo, was a short narrative film shot in the desert near Jalpa, Mexico about the death of beat legend Neal Cassady. The film’s director Ty Roberts, has been working under the Hecho en Cine umbrella ever since. Ty’s primary focus lies in producing and directing narrative and documentary content as well as almost anything that has to do with music. He has written a handful of feature scripts, two of which have now been adapted into short films and produced through Hecho.
