London-based distribution company TVF International is set to represent Parallax Films’ blue chip wildlife series Bahama Blue and the first doc from new indie Thinking Violets.
The 6 x 60-minute series, filmed by underwater cinematographer Pete Zuccarini (Life of Pi), promises to explore a previously unseen underwater world. Bahama Blue (pictured above) also explores how fierce and mysterious the world’s largest natural habitat is.
Set for an autumn release, Canadian broadcaster Oasis is on board, and TVF says it is set to announce pre-sales with partners across the globe shortly.
TVF is also set to distribute Thinking Violets’ documentary The Man Who Shot Beautiful Women, a 60-minute film on Erwin Blumenfeld, one of the world’s most highly paid fashion photographers.
The doc uses Blumenfeld’s archive of photographs, fashion films, home movies and self portraits to tell the story of a man who led an unconventional life. Interviewees include photographers Rankin, Nick Knight and Sølve Sundsbø and 82-year-old supermodel, Carmen Dell’Orefice.
Thinking Violets is a new indie launched by Remy Blumenfeld, grandson of the documentary subject and formerly a formats exec at ITV Studios.
The Man Who Shot Beautiful Women aired on BBC4 in the UK in May.
