Having been with Bright Group since it’s inception in 2004, Begonia worked with Vicki (Bright founder) to establish the agency's founding principles. She is now Bright’s Head of Legal having overall responsibility for the negotiation of contacts, heading up Bright’s unique strategy of talent management and consolidating artist and author IP.
Begonia is a passionate advocate of rights management, working closely with agents to develop a targeted strategy of rights consolidation. Negotiating on everything from royalty rates to TV and merchandising rights, Begonia drives our clients' interests securing the best deal for our artists and authors. Her proudest moment was securing the exploitation of Wanda and the Alien's rights on screen. This is what Bright Star, Sue Hendra, has to say about Begonia:
"Wanda and the Aliens' journey from book to screen has not always been a smooth ride. In situations like this you need a no nonsense negotiator, a consummate professional, Begonia is all these things and more.
It can be pretty scary when you're dealing with huge organisations who are used to being in control, Begonia has been tough with them but supportive to us. With Begonia we feel in very good hands."Sue Hendra
As the very happy new mum of two beautiful twins, Isabel and Toby Begonia works with Bright two days of the week but is always on call to deal with emergency concerns.
