I am Migel

I am a passionate producer

Surfing is my other passion, so if you can't get hold of me, I am probably chasing waves somewhere.

Raised in an artist family, I have always been mad about moving images and how to capture them.

Upon graduating from college in Germany I have been traveling around the globe, producing all kinds of moving images.

For the past 10 years I have been based out of Punta del Este, Uruguay, focusing on Latin America.

Below you find my showcase.

Please Enjoy !

FEATURE Films

Miggel Schwickerath is an acclaimed international producer.

He started his career in Europe and then moved to the US in the late nineties to join the independent production company Atlantic Streamline as vice president production.

Miggel has been co-producing major motion pictures, like two times Golden Globe nominated “Igby Goes Down” starring Susan Sarandon, Jeff Goldblum, Claire Danes, Amanda Peet, Ryan Phillippe, Bill Pullman and Kieran Culkin, and line produced “All The Queen’s Men” directed by academy award winning director Stefan Ruzowitzky starring Matt LeBlanc and Eddie Izzard.

In 2004 Miggel got married, moved to Punta del Este and started his own company Miggel & Sun. First with offices in Montevideo, then also in Buenos Aires, forming an established network with solid partners in the key countries, which allow him by now to cover the entire Latin American region.

In 2007 Miggel co-executive produced "The Informers" shot on location in LA, Buenos Aires and Uruguay, starring academy award winners Kim Basinger and Billy Bob Thornton, Winona Ryder, Mickey Rourke and Amber Heard. The film premiered in Sundance 2009.

In 2009 Miggel functioned as service producer on a TV series for Italian RAI fiction entitled "Terra Ribelle“, set in Tuscany of 1890 and shot 126 days on location in Argentina, involving extensive costume and horse work.

In 2010 Miggel co-produced "Las Malas Intenciones“, written and directed by Rosario Garcia Montero, shot 42 days on location in Peru. The film premiered at the Berlinale 2011 and was screened at many important festivals.

“Cerro Torre” an epic documentary about a famous Patagonia peak, produced by Red Bull, was released early 2014 in European cinemas. Miggel & Sun supported all 4 expeditions in Argentina with logistics for production, helicopters and a cineflex.

Since 2012 Miggel is also teaming again with Marco Weber in his new genre lable Rapid Eye Film who has just closed an important output deal with US independent studio Cinedigm. Soon more about this.
