Film veteran Vicky Judah has been tapped to run a new Los Angeles office for London-based Indigo Film & Television, distributor of such animated productions as Z Force, Nine Dog Christmas, Brady’s Beasts and Kid Clones. The office will open this month, with Judah responsible for sourcing U.S. content with a primary focus on securing film rights.
Judah previously served as VP of acquisitions at York Ent. Prior to that, she co-owned Shoreline Ent., where she secured financing and produced/exec produced more than a dozen movies including The Man From Elysian Fields, The Visit, Dark Asylum and Flight of Fancy. Her 12-year career in production, sales and acquisition also includes a stint at Crystal Sky International, where she produced independent movies and ran the sales department.
Indigo primarily handles TV, video, DVD and non-theatric rights worldwide, but is extending its business interests to include licensing, internet and publishing activities. The company handles a number of live-action and fact-based productions in addition to working with leading producers such as Earthworks Ent., Toon Factory, Village Prods. and Vivavision.
EarthWorks’ Nine Dog Christmas premiered on Disney Channel in Germany, Italy, Asia and Taiwan; on Jetix in Latin America; and on Cartoon Network in U.S. and U.K. Brady’s Beasts from Vivatoon, Toon Factory and Treehouse Prods., airs on YTV in Canada and is due to premier on TF1 and Mediaset in Italy, along with Kid Clones.
Indigo Film & Television was founded in 1998 by Paul Shields and David Lawley.
