Former Katapult Films Sales chief David Jourdan has jumped ship and will be talking to buyers about three films in his new role as managing director of T&C Pictures International.

The company is part of production and finance entity T&C Pictures, run by founding president Arata Matsushima, a former vice president at Sony International Television in LA, and partners Bill Borden and Barry Rosenbush, the producers of blockbuster musical franchise High School Musical.

The three titles for sale include Anonymous Content's adaptation of Craig Spector's slasher novel Animals starring Naveen Andrews from the TV hit Lost and Stacey Peralta's documentary Made In America about African-American gangs in Los Angeles.

Rounding out the roster is T&C and Sony Music Entertainment's Lock & Roll Forever about a Japanese all-girl band that tries to crack America. High School Musical's Lucas Gabreel stars, and Borden and Rosenbush are the producers.

T&C Pictures is backed by Tokyo-based T&C Holdings and plans to finance and produce up to three films a year geared towards family audiences in the $5m-10m budget range per year.

On the sales side Jourdan, who brought manager of international sales Christine D'Souza with him from Katapult, said he planned to have his sales team in place by Berlin.
