TMCC Seeks Co-Production Partnerships At MIPTV
 

A Halloween Puppy (Working Title)
 
The Marco Colombo Company (TMCC), which attended the recent Berlin Film Festival with its new slate of family films for the international marketplace, is at MIPTV exploring avenues for co-production on a slate of television projects for the television arena. Marco Colombo commented: "At Berlin I was surprised that many of the buyers who attended The European Film Market during the Berlinale are also attending MIPTV. The phenomenon is that the buyers are attending both the film and television markets and there is no longer a very strict line between the markets, as buyers are looking for specific content and programming. With the opening of many East European territories, new TV stations, pay per view, and On Demand there is a voracious appetite for the right content." Currently in postproduction is Halloween Puppy (working title) written by Andrew Helm and starring Eric Roberts, Brady Bunch's Susan Olsen and Kristine DeBell.

Whilst at MIPTV Colombo is talking with a number of sales agents with the view to taking board Halloween Puppy and its other productions currently in development. Santa's Summer House, and the Talking Cat!?! also penned by Andrew Helm

TMCC has five films in various stages of production pipeline as it heads to the Cannes International Film Festival next month.

About The Marco Colombo Company (TMCC)
Marco Colombo is a seasoned international film and television executive and independent film producer and financier of more than thirty films.

Starting his career with Robbie Little's Overseas Film Group (now the Little Film Company), he joined the company in 1983 as Little's assistant and quickly rose to the position of VP in charge of Marketing and International Sales. In 1985 at the start of the video boom, Vestron Inc, a pioneer in the video business based in Connecticut, appointed Colombo VP of Intl' Sales and Acquisitions, and he was part of the management team when Vestron went public the following year.

In 1987, seeing a gap in the marketplace, he established Filmtrust Motion Picture Licensing, an independent company that grew rapidly utilizing innovative marketing strategies and aggressively pursuing its customers to maximize the potential of their film and television titles.

After four successful years he sold Filmtrust and became an aggregator for several top European TV networks by creating attractive film packages and acting as a broker between the international distribution companies and the television networks.
Marco Colombo was on the Board of Directors AFMA (renamed IFTA) in the early days of its growth. IFTA is the association of the independent international distribution companies that includes major independent companies, among them Lionsgate, Miramax, and Summit. Colombo was on the organization's Board for several years and served as Vice Chairman from 1990 to 1993.

The son of legendary Italian producer Harry Colombo who produced A Fistful of Dollars, Marco Colombo graduated from University of Southern California Business School and also holds a degree in Computer Systems & Programming.
In 1999 Marco Colombo took a leave of absence from the film business (but not entirely as he continued to fund pictures at arms length) and moved to Monte-Carlo where he spends his days between actively managing his finances and family activities.

In 2012 he established The Marco Colombo Company (TMCC) as a continuance of fully reactivating his film production activities and exploring the new technology platforms by attending all the film and television markets.
