Verve Ventures will focus on creative strategic partnerships in the international and domestic film and television space, including finance and sales, digital distribution, and the development of new technologies such as Virtual Reality on a global scale.

Beecroft brings to Verve a wealth of experience, having worked at many of the top companies in the international space during her career including First Look/Overseas Film Group, HBO, GreeneStreet Films and FilmNation, to name a few.

“The international landscape has changed drastically in the last five years. With 70% of the box office coming from the international marketplace, savvy foreign distributors, producers, and financiers alike are looking to establish new and strategic partnerships on both the theatrical and television sides,” said Beecroft. “With Verve representing some of the best directors and writers in the business, I feel we are uniquely positioned to find new and exciting ways to expand our clients’ reach into the global marketplace. I am absolutely thrilled to be part of the Verve family.”

“With the exponential growth and importance of the overseas marketplace, being able to draw from an international viewpoint will be the best way to serve our clients moving forward and we believe that Amy is the best person to lead the way in this space,” the Verve partners said in a joint statement.

Verve represents award-winning writers and directors as well as content creators in the burgeoning Virtual Reality space.
