Trans-Pacific Media Consultants Group has expanded its client list, company president Michael Werner announced Tuesday at AFM, adding representation of BMG Video Intl. for the U.K., Italy, Germany and France. Also added are EDKO Films for Hong Kong, Jaguar Films for the Middle East and Pavilion Cinemas for Malaysia.
The move, initiated by senior VP and partner Laurie Woodrow, adds a new focus on Euro territories for the company, which now reps 17 territories, mainly in Asia.
Werner said that adding clients helps to put his company “in a position to come to producers, agents and attorneys at an earlier stage of the film-making process and offer them the prospect of partially financing their films through a direct multiterritory licensing arrangement.”
Werner, based in Hong Kong, is consultant to 20th Century Fox Intl., Star TV and the Fortune Media Group.
