World Film Magic was founded on December 12, 1998 by Jose R Gonzalez. Is one of the first Mexican American companies to bring Spanish language movies to the American public. Jose R Gonzalez CEO wanted to be a part of Hollywood. Movies excited him. He dreamed of creating a film production company. With support from his wife Sky Rodriguez, Budget Films and his former lawyer Ronald Chew he began exhibiting movies in 16, 35mm and video to hospitals, jails, cultural centers, schools and libraries. Their customers really enjoyed watching among newer titles, classics like Gone With the Wind, The Alamo, Casa Blanca, Ben Hur, etc. He thanks Albert Drebis, Budgtet Films president, for enabling him to create a profitable business and teaching him about the aspects of moviemaking. World Film Magic had been born. At one point Jose's collection consisted of 10,000 movie titles in 16 mm and 35 mm. When he worked as an editor for United Artists, his friend Esteban Jimenez and him started to think about seriously making movies. They began to put a team together that would not only share their dream and push along with them, but also who could bring their own talent and knowledge. Francisco Olea came to the group when the switch to producing came about. Ramon Alvarado joined afterwards completing a team that embodies a desire to succeed. The company started to produce some trailers,short films and videos. Jess Araujo, current attoney incorporated to the team to complete a strong and driven team. From there they were able to work with major studios like Warner Bros., Universal, and United Artists securing distribution deals and the opportunity they have for producers of independent film and also bringing movies to Latin America. After this period the company reinforced associations with companies like Imcine and churubusco Estudios, which brought Perfume de Violetas. Amores Perros and Perfume have garnered prestigious awards around the globe. Entertainment is an ever expanding industry and thanks to the advent of the DVD, movies have not only had a phenomenal life after theatrical exhibition but many films are produced solely for the increasing home video market that includes cable, satellite, television and the internet.
