Loveboat Signs Director Sean Frank
Transatlantic creative production company Loveboat, which launched earlier this year, has signed Sean Frank to their diverse cooperative of directors and inter- disciplinary artists.
Sean Frank is a London-raised, Los Angeles-based director who began his artistic journey making stop motion animations at the age of 10. A graduate of Goldsmiths College and Central Saint Martins, his films are rooted in real, relatable environments, situations, and subcultures that combine cinematic compositions with inspirational stories.
Through his music videos and films, Frank explores the condition and profundity of the human spirit, with a lens towards the vulnerability and triumphs of life. His work has screened internationally, garnering several award nominations. He has been featured by Vogue and Nowness, amongst others. Recent work includes the riveting short film Further Away, executive produced by Lena Waithe with AT&T, the documentary short Mas Fuerte, Every Kind Of Way - Visual E.P. for Grammy award-winning artist H.E.R., and the TV series Boomerang, also executive produced by Lena Waithe. He has also completed branded projects for clients including Apple Music.
For Frank, art has always been a vehicle to confront wider societal issues. Often tackling the complex truths and cultural realities of our world, he does so with a blend of sensitivity and unflinching, impactful visuals. Relating to the subject matter of a film is an absolute necessity for Frank, connecting personal experience to the narrative in order to create a living, breathing testament to human existence.
“To keep seeking and telling meaningful stories is my responsibility as a filmmaker,” says Frank. “Showing unique perspectives that make people feel, to question the status quo, and to illuminate the broader social concerns of our time motivates me. The team at Loveboat completely gets where I’m coming from and respects my work. I’m happy to be creating with them.”
“Sean’s films all share a sensual and evocative quality,” says Jeff Baron, managing partner of the LA office. “Loveboat’s foundation is built upon our commitment to mentorship and development of director’s careers. We align completely with Sean’s passion for rich storytelling and dedication to progress, and we are thrilled to be representing him in this next chapter of his career.”
