STRATEGIC FOCUS We can distil our concept into four fundamental principles:
* EDITORIAL CHOICE: each produced work mixes authenticity and deep singularity with successful commercial viability. * CONVICTION: the Producer’s sensibility resides at the heart of our editorial choices. At The Bureau, priority is given to the continuous development of Producers. * INDEPENDENCE: to unite around The Bureau a group of associated Producers, sharing similar ideals. These Producers are individually independent in their editorial choices and are collectively responsible for the financial liabilities they commit the Company to. * DEVELOPMENT: to identify new talent and lead them towards success; to train future producers; to finance signed projects; to manage and follow sales and distribution through links with major UK & French players as well as European international sales companies.
