Bailey launched his career creating award-winning short films including Self Serve, selected in the Top 8 Tropfest Films of all time.
Other films include Tropfest finalists Silencer and the Studio Canal Prize-winning Glenn Owen Dodds, which screened at the world’s biggest short film festival, the Clermont Ferrand Short Film Festival.
Photoplay executive producer Oliver Lawrance said: “Frazer first caught my eye with his ability to cast unforgettable characters and for his hands-on direction that has elicited some truly irreverent and memorable performances.
“We are really excited to welcome this great talent and all-round nice guy to the roster.”
Commenting on his signing, Bailey said he’s always been a fan of Photoplay.
“They have a track record for supporting their directors with a truly collaborative approach to filmmaking, and their long-form division means they are serious about investing in this space, with three notable feature films already under their belt.”
Bailey’s first feature film, Home, is currently in development.
