Los Angeles-based Arclight Films has launched a UK office and put former ICM agent and Natural Nylon founding partner Damon Bryant in charge.

Bryant will head UK production and acquisitions for the company and its two divisions, Darclight and Easternlight.

'It is important for Arclight's development to have a European base since we are expanding both our production and sales operations,' Gary Hamilton said.

'Our relationship with Damon has been very rewarding and I am really pleased that he is able to join us and fulfill this role,' Arclight chief Gary Hamilton said.

'This is an exciting opportunity for me to use my production experience and knowledge of the UK industry to help enhance the UK and European operations of an international company that is growing,' Bryant added.

Bryant produced and Arclight is selling Flashbacks Of A Fool starring Daniel Craig as a fading Hollywood star that confronts his past. BVI UK will release in the UK and Arclight is in talks with North American distributors.

Bryant also produced Nora and formerly worked at Cobalt in the UK.
