Academy and BAFTA award-winning producer David Parfitt of Trademark Films (pictured) is to support UK-based collective of content creators Bob & Co in developing and producing high-end projects and investing in emerging talent. Bob & Co develops, distributes and funds all areas of production; from kids TV and feature films, to drama adaptations, documentaries and theatre projects.
Parfitt is a highly experienced film, television and theatre producer. Former Chairman of BAFTA and current Chairman of Film London, his film credits include Henry V, Peter’s Friends, Much Ado About Nothing, The Madness of King George, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Twelfth Night, The Wings of the Dove and Shakespeare in Love. “David is one of the UK’s most respected producers, bringing a wealth of experience across a range of TV, film and theatre projects,” says Bob & Co founder and CEO Bob Benton said.
Meanwhile, Parfitt says: “I’ve worked closely with Bob & Co on their brilliant adaptation of Sebastian Faulk’s The Girl at the Lion D’Or and it seems a natural progression to help where I can on the rest of their very exciting slate. I will of course continue my commitment to all our Trademark projects”.
