COLT Studio Group (CSG), parent company of Buckshot Productions, COLT Minute Man Solo Series, and COLT Gear, has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Slovakia-based Multi Media Services, A.S., parent company of Bel Ami for worldwide distribution of the Bel Ami product line.
Bel Ami, founded and run by award-winning director/videographer George Duroy, is considered to be the pre-eminent producer of films featuring young European men.
COLT Studio Group will represent all Bel Ami titles, including the Personal Trainers series, the 101 Men and XL solo lines, and others for worldwide wholesale and direct-to-consumer mail order. U.S. wholesale distribution for both COLT and Bel Ami will continue through Paladin Video of Henderson, Nevada.
In a press release issued Friday, John Rutherford, CSG President and Executive Producer, stated,"I am thrilled we will be representing the work of George Duroy. The history and timeless beauty of the Bel Ami titles is a natural fit for COLT Studio Group. We jumped at the chance to bring these fantastic titles into the CSG distribution network."
"George Duroy and I have a long history that began with our early years at Falcon Studios," Rutherford continued. "George directed and shot the first Falcon International films. I am so pleased and continually impressed by his exquisite taste and style, and stand by him to ensure his success."
"Bel Ami and COLT Studio Group have a natural, built-in brotherhood," said Bel Ami's Duroy. "John Rutherford and I have worked together in the industry for well over a decade. I look forward to the fresh outlook that our combined histories will offer in the coming years."
