VAN NUYS, Calif. — London-based studio Harmony Films has opened an office in Los Angeles and announced the hiring of a sales and marketing assistant.

Linda Alcala, formerly of Evil Angel, joins the expanded company’s newest office, from which U.S. orders for the company's library will be fulfilled.

"We spent the first week of this month setting up and getting our stock sorted," Jason Maskell, Harmony Films sales and marketing manager, said. "We're running at 100 percent and Linda is a great addition to our sales force. We look forward to increase our North American sales with her help, as well as working with our existing customers and building relations with new customers."

The first movie to be released since Harmony Films moved its American sales and distribution in-house is Gazzman's "Young Harlots: Dirty Secrets," starring Susana Abril, Eve Angel, Sandy Cage, Carmen McCarthy, Carmel Moore, Robyn Truelove and Poppy Morgan. It will be released Nov. 19.

On Nov. 26, the studio will release Strangelove's "Ladies of Pleasure," featuring Sofia Valentine, Jools Brook, Zafira, Renee Richards and Black Angelika.

"Young Harlots: Dirty Secrets" and "Ladies of Pleasure" will also be the first sold in the U.S. with the same covers, o-cards and branding Harmony Films uses globally.

"All aspects of our movies are carefully planned — including the artwork on our box covers," Maskell said.
