Imagem has launched a joint TV and Film venture Imagem FTV with former EMI Music Publishing evp Jonathan Channon to represent the music publishing assets of media companies and has signed its first deal with Avalon Distribution.

Imagem FTV will offer services to broadcasters, production companies and other media organisations, with the aim of adding value to music intellectual property, through commissioning and producing bespoke music and production music with synch exploitation of both. FTV will use the global network of Imagem offices and sub agents.

One of the first deals to be announced is the global partnership with Avalon Distribution, which represents  production companies including Avalon Television, Flame TV, Topical Television, Tinderbox Television and Liberty Bell Productions.

The agreement will see the publisher manage and exploit Avalon’s library of owned composed music and collect royalties on behalf of all Avalon Distribution clients.

Based at Imagem’s London offices, Channon most recently served as executive vice president of Media & Business Development at EMI Music Publishing where he signed and worked with a wide range of media companies, including ITV, 20th Century Fox, Endemol, Hit Entertainment and Shine TV.

One of his early ventures at EMI also included the packaging of the music deal on the Danny Boyle's Trainspotting.

“Jonathan has made producers, broadcasters and film studios understand the value of music and IP ownership," says John Minch, ceo Imagem Music UK. "Our new joint venture will look to broaden our business in this significant area."
