Pic biz gets new P&A fund

Private equity fund set for Vanguard films

Maloof Entertainment, John Williams’ Vanguard Animation and Aurelius have created a $20 million print and advertising private equity fund for Vanguard films.

“The P&A fund commitment of the Maloof family is a fantastic way to improve the domestic and foreign distribution deals, as well as the overall financing deals for our animated films,” Williams said.

The fund was arranged by Aurelius. SC Films Intl., headed by Simon Crowe, will be handling international sales, and the fund’s advisory team includes film finance expert Cassian Elwes, PR and marketing consultant Lisa Taback and licensing attorney Geneva Wasserman.

Williams’ producing credits include the first two “Shrek” films, “Valiant” and “Space Chimps.” He’s an exec producer on Walter Salles’ “On the Road” and on Sara Sugarman’s comedy “Vinyl,” which is in post-production.

The funds will be used on 3D film projects, which will be enabled for “auto stereoscopic” viewing, or 3D without glasses.
