New York-based Imagine Entertainment’s Imagine Documentaries imprint has entered into a multi-year, strategic, non-exclusive partnership with Los Angeles-based White Horse Pictures.
Imagine Documentaries president Justin Wilkes will oversee the projects alongside White Horse Pictures head of documentaries Jeanne Elfant-Festa and White Horse partner Cassidy Hartmann.
The announcement was made by Wilkes and Imagine Entertainment co-chairman Michael Rosenberg along with White Horse chairman Nigel Sinclair and president Nicholas Ferrall.
The partnership builds on previous collaborations, notably The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years, an Imagine/White Horse co-production. The feature-length doc was produced by Sinclair and Imagine co-founders Ron Howard (pictured right) and Brian Grazer (left). It was directed by Howard.
“Brian, Ron and I have had a long and successful relationship with award-winning producer Nigel Sinclair and White Horse, from the film Rush to the documentary The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years and now on our documentary on world renowned tenor Luciano Pavarotti, which is currently in production,” said Rosenberg in a statement.
The upcoming Pavaroti is directed by Howard, who is producing alongside Sinclair, Grazer, Rosenberg and Elfant-Festa.
