According to Therapy managing director Barry Hughes, the decision to part ways happened at the end of last year, when the shop's lease was up for renewal. At that time, Hughes says it became clear that Venville, Denton and Manwaring had different goals for the next ten years, so they decided that the best way to move forward was to form separate companies.
Therapy Films lives on, with Venville and Hughes as partners. Contrary to previous reports, Hughes says plans for Therapy's remaining directors are still in discussion but he hopes for those to be finalized by Monday. "We have had a wonderful few years, formulating the Therapy brand worldwide," says Hughes. "I am very excited about the prospects of continuing this."
