Charlotte Walls Sets Up Catalyst, Produces ‘Pomegranate Soup,’ ‘Genius’
Charlotte Walls, a former producer at Matador Pictures, has founded a finance and production outfit called Catalyst Global Media. The finance and production company will deliver high-end TV series as well as films to the global marketplace.
Walls, who founded the company together with Gideon Lyons and Al Hardiman, will act as the company’s CEO.
Catalysts Global Media will be working with a number of partners so as to come up with 4 – 6 projects on a yearly basis across digital/television series, as well as feature films.
The company’s first film projects will be novel adaptations. The two novels are “Genius” and “Pomegranate Soup”.
While speaking during the launch of the company, Walls said that, “We are launching Catalyst with a dedicated production finance specialism, and as such we will advise a number of EIS companies engaged in the business of international sales for feature films and television, as well as funding the development of original film and television projects.”
In the next 18 months, Catalyst Global Media is planning on launching into the indie-gaming market.
Walls went on to add that, “At our core we seek to nurture and champion creative talent and find ourselves taking creative risks and pushing boundaries as a matter of course. Content, in all forms, is increasing in value around the world. Whether exploiting original stories, developing an epic franchise or adapting/reimagining classic works, the strategically vetted approach to financing new films and properties is appealing to us. We’re aligning high-quality content with funding and business execution in a way that can maximize the exploitation and commercialization of that content for the content owners, distributors, investors and Catalyst alike.”
