Launched in May, Recall is a joint-venture between record company Recall Group and composer/musician Eric Serra.
A B.A. graduate in music business at the University of New York, 33-year-old Beauvois previously worked for seven years at U.S. indie label Rawkus, most recently in the position as GM.
In 2002, he founded Coldcuts Productions, an audiovisual production company that also facilitated deals in the United States for European indie music labels such as Naïve and Twin-Fizz.
"This new experience is very stimulating to me," Beauvois tells Billboard.biz. "Recall is one of the few indie labels that has a great future in France. We want to be aggressive and innovative in the movie soundtrack business. With Eric Serra on board, we will give more recognition to composers."
RMFF is distributed by Warner Music in France. It recently signed a deal with leading European independent movie studio EuropaCorp, notably getting the worldwide rights to the soundtracks to four of their upcoming movies.
In addition, New York-based indie TVT Soundtrax has been granted the North American and U.K. licensing rights to four upcoming OSTs from Recall Music For Films and EuropaCorp.
The titles are for "The Transporter 2," "Revolver," "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada" and "Bandidas."
The terms of the agreement with TVT were not disclosed.
