NY-based Visit establishes boutique sales arm
by Jeremy Kay, Los Angeles

Visit Films, the New York-based production company run by former Focus Features International distribution employee Ryan Kampe and commercials producer and creative executive Sylvain Tron, has launched the boutique sales agency Visit Sales.

The company will specialise in finding foreign distribution channels for independent American projects and the partners will attend Cannes to establish ties with distributors.

Visit Sales will launch its inaugural roster at the AFM in November. Its slate includes Steve Barron's 2006 Gotham Award winner Choking Man and the upcoming LA Film Festival competition entry Severed Ways: The Norse Discovery Of America.

"There is a place in the marketplace for small American films that is currently being under-represented," Kampe and Tron said. "As film-makers ourselves, we know the value of even a number of small sales on these films. The niche that we want to fill is to be able to bring high quality low cost titles to distributors throughout the world.

"By keeping overhead low on our side, the pricing and terms can be very competitive. The key for us is in volume, which we hope will help our partners fill the product needs that they have. We will be focusing on international sales and will in certain situations also sell domestic rights."

Visit Sales is actively looking for American films that have had a successful run on the festival circuit to add to the slate.

Kampe and Tron established Visit Films in December 2005. Its first production was The Big Bad Swim, which premiered at Tribeca 2006. The development slate includes the Louisiana-set post-Katrina drama The Good Forest, friendship drama Entry Level, and the dark family drama A Simple Love Story.
