Ele Juarez's Madrid and Miami based consultancy Intuition Media has appointed Patrick Juarez as managing director of feature film and documentary production arm Intuition Films.

Juarez will oversee the selection and production of projects for the newly opened division, which aims to make one or two films per year possibly in co-production with Latin America or the US Hispanic market.

Thanks to a deal unveiled last month, Intuition Films is the exclusive representative seeking projects and potential co-productions in Spain and Portugal for the recently launched MTV Films Europe. The division will not necessarily co-produce MTV projects in Spain.

A one-time international channel co-ordinator for E! Entertainment Television in Los Angeles, Juarez has worked recently as a production supervisor on various Spanish feature films and has directed documentaries, short films, commercials and music videos.

He has a masters degree in film directing and producing from the Academy of Art College in San Francisco.
