Following extensive academic training in the audio-visual industry (a degree in media studies, film direction at New York University, production, scriptwriting and editing at the University of Navarra, audio-visual production for BBC and EAVE, animated cartoon production and film marketing at CARTOON, etc) Myriam Ballesteros set up her own production company, MB PRODUCCIONES in 1993 to create, direct and produce several short films and the animated series MIMI & MR BOBO ( 26 x26´) and MIMI & THE GANG (30 X 7’), co-produced with TVE.
In 2003, she founded IMIRA ENTERTAINMENT where she was creative director, creating producing and directing series such as:
