In 2014, Oriol Ruiz and Marta Bayarri founded the production company MOMOTRUP FILMS with the purpose to carry out their own artistic projects. Both, actors, have a common goal: make projects in which story is above everything. Where screenplay and characters have their own dimension, and that allows us to work many layers within the narrative. We are interested in the use of a camera at the service of story. We like to create through the work with the actors a specific and necessary relationship of the characters in order to make their own universe. The one about the movie we want to tell.
Throughout the last 5 years they have produced three short films, "Una Nit" (2014), "Fugit" (2016) and "Vaca" (2018). And now they have the first feature film screenplay on the table, "Hera".
UNA NIT (One Night), 2014 _ National Premiere in Cortogenia Film Festival in October 2014 and International Premiere in the Cinequest Film Festival of California, USA (qualifying festival of the Oscars and whose selection allowed us to present candidacy for the 30th edition of the Goya Awards in 2016). It has been selected in more than 50 national and international festivals and won 6 Awards, among which the Best New Director Award at the FIBABC'16.
FUGIT, 2016 _ After the good reception of "Una Nit", Miguel Angel Faura (producer of films such as Enemy, Escobar, Mine ...) and David Victori (director and screenwriter of El Pacto, Zero by Ridley Scott, Pulsaciones, Son of Cain, La Culpa ...) join this project as executive producers betting on the value of Marta Bayarri as director and screenwriter. Starring Nil Cardoner and Oriol Ruiz, it has the National Premiere in the 28th Aguilar de Campoo Film Festival in December 2016, and the International Premiere in the 32nd Santa Barabara International Film Festival. Getting more than 65 Selections, twenty of them of first national and international level, it is selected by the Spanish Academy of Cinema as one of the 15 finalists as Candidate for Best Live-Action Short Film for the Goya Awards 2018.
VACA, 2018 _ With this project, Marta, carries out the adaptation of a theater text, taking the risk of trying new narrative languages different from those she had used in her previous projects, always within an audiovisual framework. To this end, she counts again with the complicity of Oriol Ruiz and Miguel Angel Faura, as well as that of a team of great human and professional quality throughout the entire process. Starring Marta herself and Pepo Blasco. We just began the Distribution.
In the field of performing arts they premiered the play "Mark & Olivia" within the OFF Program of Romea Theater in Barcelona (January 2017), and the short play "Midnight" (2015, Ciutadella de Minorca).
