PRINCIPALS
 

ARIANNE FRASER / CEO

Ms. Fraser’s first experience in the business was as a producer on the film WASSUP ROCKERS, directed by Larry Clark, where she handled the sale of the film's worldwide rights. This led to a career in film sales. In August, 2005, Ms. Fraser became Director of Foreign Sales and Distribution for First Look International, where she handled sales of the company's library consisting of over 800 titles and the then-current film slate including: SMILEY FACE (with Anna Faris and Adam Brody, directed by Greg Araki); THE BREED (starring Taryn Manning and Oliver Hudson, produced by Wes Craven); and AN AMERICAN CRIME (with Catherine Keener and Ellen Page). In March of 2008, Ms. Fraser became VP of International Sales and Distribution with Arsenal Pictures, focusing on the acquisition of completed content for worldwide sales. Ms. Fraser decided to take the entrepreneurial plunge in early 2010 with the formation of Highland Film Group (HFG), where she partnered with Delphine Perrier. Ms. Perrier previously worked at Paramount Vantage, Odd Lot International, and Mandate Pictures. Highland’s highlights include the sleeper hit INSTRUCTIONS NOT INCLUDED (directed and starring Eugenio Derbez) which grossed over $44 million in the U.S. box office; THE BAYTOWN OUTLAWS (with Billy Bob Thornton and Eva Longoria); REVENGE FOR JOLLY (with Kristen Wiig, Elijah Wood, Ryan Phillippe and Adam Brody) and SOMEDAY THIS PAIN WILL BE USEFUL TO YOU (with Ellen Burstyn, Marcia Gay Harden, and Lucy Liu).  Ms. Fraser has also successfully financed multiple films using a combination of pre-sales to cover senior and subordinated debt, gap, tax credit, and facilitated capital for mezz and equity. Ms. Fraser and Ms. Perrier have most recently financed the films: BARELY LETHAL (with Hailee Steinfeld, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jessica Alba); YOUR RIGHT MIND (starring Katherine Heigl and Ben Barnes), PARTS PER BILLION (with Teresa Palmer, Alexis Bledel, Rosario Dawson and Josh Hartnett), and MURDER OF A CAT (with Blythe Danner, Nikki Reed and Greg Kinnear). Future credits include dance thriller HYPNOTIZE 3D and action film HUNTED. Ms. Fraser continues to use her unique and integral approach for film sales and her passion for commercial and quality packages to assist in financing films and bringing them to audiences worldwide.
