Freshly-Minted Goldfinch Studios Names Sales Chief (EXCLUSIVE)

Former Distrify CEO Andy Green joins and is at AFM this week

Newly created Goldfinch Studios has brought on Andy Green as head of sales and distribution.

Announced last week, Goldfinch Studios was launched as an integrated development, production, finance, post-production and vfx business, and was created following the merger of London-based Goldfinch Entertainment and York-based GSP Studios.

Green will work alongside managing director Kirsty Bell and studio director Alan Latham. The new recruit comes to Goldfinch from on-demand service Distrify, where he was CEO.

“For a long time, we have been looking for the right person to spearhead the sales and distribution of all the content we either fund, executive produce or produce,” Bell said. “But what Andy brings is more than that, given his extensive global experience, his understanding of the changing market place and the digital space, and his all-round industry knowledge and business acumen.”

Goldfinch’s slate of upcoming projects includes Bill Nighy film “Triple Word Score,” and Michael Morpurgo adaptation “Waiting for Anya,” which will be directed by Ben Cookson (“Almost Married”).

Green is at AFM in his new role. “Goldfinch Studios is a company producing the very best of British and international films, our forward and global-looking ambitions provide an exciting new opportunity to create new partnerships and to deliver the very best of content to audiences worldwide,” he said.

Pre-merger, GSP’s film projects included “That Good Night” with John Hurt, while Goldfinch Entertainment invested in Amazon’s “Le Mans: Racing Is Everything” and “The Eichmann Show” (pictured), starring Martin Freeman, among others.
