Carnaby International co-production and sales chief Will Machin has exited to join ThinkFilm International, the overseas sales division of ThinkFilm and sister company of London-based finance and sales label Capitol Films.

Machin will report to Capitol's managing director, Peter Naish, and will be charged with growing ThinkFilm's foreign sales slate.

Said Naish: "(Machin) has a wealth of relevant sales and financing experience and I look forward to working with him as we move the ThinkFilm brand forward to meet the challenges that lie ahead."
