After the world premiere of ‘Frank’, directed by Lenny Abrahamson, last night, Element Pictures announce a first look deal which covers film and television projects for Abrahamson to write, direct and produce.

Element have been involved with almost all of Lenny Abrahamson’s productions to date, including his feature films ‘Adam & Paul’ (produced with Speers Film), ‘Garage’, and last year’s ‘What Richard Did’, as well as his TV series ‘Prosperity’.

‘Frank’ is their latest collaboration. It is an Element Pictures/Runaway Fridge production for film4, BFI, Protagonist Pictures and the Irish Film board. Upcoming productions for Abrahamson with Element include a number of film and TV projects, the most highly anticipated of which is a film adaptation of ‘Room’, based on the bestselling novel by Emma Donoghue.

Ed Guiney, who runs Element with Andrew Lowe, said "Andrew and I feel very lucky indeed to be working with Lenny, a truly unique, once in a lifetime film making talent whose international reputation is growing rapidly… We now want to formalise what has been a very successful relationship with Element over the last decade and support Lenny in his intention to make ever more impactful and high profile film and television projects. We will do this by allowing him to develop his ambition both as a film maker of his own films as well as a creative collaborator with other talent, a role at which he also excels. We expect this partnership to be a very productive and vibrant source of distinctive and successful new projects for the international marketplace over the coming years.”

Abrahamson was represented in negotiations by Rachel Holroyd, his agent at Casarotto, Ramsay and Associates in London and by Adriana Aberghetti at WME in Los Angeles. He said, “Making films with Ed is the most natural thing in the world for me. We work so well together, with a trust, an ease and a creative understanding that has deepened over the years. I am keenly aware of how unusual a relationship like ours is in the film industry and this deal underscores our intention to preserve and develop it. In Element Pictures, Ed and Andrew have built a company with an international reputation for producing excellent work. I’m proud to make it my home as a film maker and very, very excited at the prospect of the work we will produce together.”
