Nick Taussig, Malcolm Neaum, Sophie Harmer and Henry Farrington were added UK sales and production outfit Embankment Films to lead its unwritten department.
Taussig and Harmer are both joined by British production Salon Pictures, producer of the Bafta-nominated documentary McQueen for which Embankment managed the sales.
Taussig was the company’s managing director while Harmer was in charge of production. Farrington also consulted for Salon as a development researcher.
Neaum joins from the CB Films team where he was managing director and produced BBC series Savile Row.
Salon is thought to be closing after the departure of Taussig, who founded the company in 2013. The company produced the Katharine Hepburn documentary Call me Kate in which Embankment initially began sales in 2020 before Abacus Media Rights took over.
CB Films is also thought to be shutting down.
In their new roles at Embankment, Taussig and Neaum will serve as producers, with Harmer as head of production and Farrington as lead researcher.
Embankment has made extensive changes to its team over the past year, most recently bringing in Gabriella Kramer-Khan as head of acquisitions, production and distribution.
The company’s upcoming panel also includes Thaddeus O’Sullivan The Miracle Club starring Maggie Smith and Laura Linney.
