Last Tuesday, May 16th, Miley Cyrus’s ‘Jaded’ video premiered, with the participation of a production company made up of Costa Ricans. Baby Atómica was born in Los Angeles with the aim of fusing various artistic disciplines, including film, painting, music and design.
This firm is made up of national producers Miguel and Dennis Gómez together with JesyOdio, who has Costa Rican roots. “Baby Atómica aims to be a multipurpose and flexible space for collaboration between artists. Whether it is to set up a gallery, projections or showcases, we want our studio to be a versatile stage that supports all types of content creators. We want to create a community where ideas and collaboration flourish”, explained Odio.
Backstage the video of Miley Cyrus
Precisely, the name and surname of this woman appear in the credits of the video “Jaded”, which Cyrus released on different platforms such as YouTube. “It was an intimate project that Miley wanted to collaborate on with trusted people, and we had the opportunity to be a part of her vision. We are proud that an artist like Miley, who constantly evolves and breaks stereotypes, is part of our history”, said Odio, who appears as executive producer.
They were present in Cannes
Odio was in Cannes, France, along with Miguel and Dennis Gómez, where last Friday they presented their first 3 film projects, which are in development. They were seeking funds for these works. The first is Fanfiction, a story that follows a fan in love with a SoundCloud rapper, whose written fictions start to come true. Then there’s Modern Legends, a film franchise that revisits Latin American legends from an adventure-horror perspective. Finally, they have Chronocapsules, a project that tells the story of Samantha, a young woman who can travel through time thanks to new technology.
“Baby Atómica is ready to revolutionize the way cinema and artistic disciplines merge to create unique and empowering experiences. Our focus on community, creativity, and diversity will allow us to tell exciting and authentic stories that resonate with audiences around the world”, highlighted Miguel Gómez.
