Former Icon Entertainment International chief Ralph Kamp has been joined by Louise Goodsill at the head of newly-launched sales operation Odyssey Entertainment.

Goodsill is president and chief operating officer, while Kamp is chairman and chief executive. Odyssey, which formally launches at Cannes, has also assembled three key executives: head of production Joshua Andrews; head of development Sarah Arnott; and head of legal & business affairs Rachel Woodeson.

Alongside TV properties such as six sports documentaries, the sales agent is representing supernatural horror feature Deathwatch, starring Jamie Bell. Odyssey has representation of the Hammer Film Library.

"I am really pleased with the progress that Louise and I have already made at Odyssey," said Kamp. "We already have enough diverse product to ensure a successful first year of operation and we now have a management team capable of assembling an enviable theatrical slate. We hope to be able to announce one or two new theatrical films during Cannes."
