London-based media banner Bob & Co has brought award-winning producer David Parfitt on-board as a creative consultant. Parfitt, who runs Trademark Films, will also sit on the company’s investment committee for the Jersey-based content fund Cultural Capital Fund. He will also consult across Bob & Co and their media partners Duchess Street Productions, SUMS Film & Media, and Ghost Light, advising on a range of TV, Film and theatre projects.
Parfitt will support Bob & Co in their work developing and producing high-end projects and investing in emerging talent as a consultant, as well as continuing his work at Trademark Films. Parfitt’s credits include Shakespeare in Love and My Weekend with Marilyn.
“I have 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.” said Parfitt.
Parfitt is a former chairman of BAFTA and current chairman of Film London. He established Trademark Films in 2001, with company credits including I Capture the Castle, Chasing Liberty and Tom Stoppard’s award-winning adaptation of Parade’s End which he co-produced with Mammoth Screen for the BBC and HBO. Parfitt is currently exec producing Loving Vincent, a hand-painted animation, co-produced with Breakthru Films in Poland and starring Douglas Booth, Saoirse Ronan, Chris O’Dowd and Aidan Turner. Parfitt also co-founded the Renaissance Theatre Company with Kenneth Branagh in 1987.
