WMA’s Latin pic pal

Agency to consult with funder NALA

The William Morris Agency has formed a partnership with NALA Films to provide consulting services on a slate of at least five films.

NALA is bringing $125 million in production funding to the partnership over the next two to three years.

WMA will help NALA consider possible feature packages for funding. NALA Films prexy Darlene Caamano Loquet said shingle plans to fully finance its projects and does not intend to seek partners.

Hollywood-based NALA (North America Latin America) Films will also continue to produce projects outside of its WMA partnership.

NALA was launched last year by CEO Emilio Diez Barroso, one of the founders of Voy Pictures, and former talent scout-producer Caamano. NALA’s goal has been to attract Hollywood directors to work with Latin American talent on English-language pics.

NALA’s projects include “Mr. Burnout”; “The Air I Breathe”; horror pic “Night of Light,” directed by Norberto Lopez Amado; and “In the Valley of Eleh,” directed by Paul Haggis. It’s joined with Summit Entertainment and Steve Samuels Media Capital in financing and producing “Valley.”

WMA also is repping three other entities on a consulting basis — Pelican Film Fund, Beverly Bridge Fund and El Camino, Bob Yari’s financing entity.
