Ben Mann, Geoffrey Seymour’s former producer at Geoffrey Seymour

Films, is set to launch a London production house in tandem with the

French company, Quad Productions.



Mann was approached last September by Quad, a major production company

in Paris, and asked to head the London office. The company, which he

will part own, will be called Quad Productions London.



Remy Belvaux and Bruno Aveillan, two of Quad’s directors in France, will

form an initial roster at the London office. ’Both will be spending as

much time in London as is needed,’ Mann said.



Despite the name, Mann is keen for Quad Productions London to be viewed

as a standalone company and not purely as a London off-shoot of the

Paris operation. ’We don’t expect or want overnight success,’ he said.

’But we’re taking it very seriously.’



Mann is also on the lookout for new talent and has already approached

two potential directors.
