London-based sales and production company restructures to “improve efficency”.
The Works Media Group, the London-based sales and production company, is restructuring as part of move to cut its overheads.
Carl Clifton, the company’s managing director, confirmed that it was planning to make changes in a bid to “improve efficiency” but would not confirmed how many jobs will be cut.
Sources have suggested that Joy Wong, the experienced and respected head of international, will now be leaving the company.
Clifton said: “There is nothing wildly exciting. We are no different than any other company working in economically difficult times.”
The Works will have four films screening in Berlin next week. Just prior to the market, the company announced that it had come on board to handle international sales on runaway Belgian box-office hit, Dossier K.
Directed by Jan Verheyen, crime thriller Dossier K is the follow up to the highly successful The Alzheimer Case (a.k.a. Memory of a Killer) which was also handled by The Works.
The film was released in Belgium on December 9 and it has raked in $3,208,055 (331,154 admissions) to date.
