Christopher Aird Joins Element Pictures


Two Brothers Pictures alum Christopher Aird has been tapped by Element Pictures for the newly created role of creative director.

Aird starts in the role in January 2023 and will be based at Element’s London office. He joins the team from Two Brothers Pictures, where he served as head of drama for the last five years, executive producing hit series such as the Jamie Dornan-fronted The Tourist and two seasons of Baptiste, as well as Liar, Angela Black, Cheat and The Widow.

In the newly created role of creative director, Aird will work alongside co-founder and co-CEO Ed Guiney managing Element’s development and production slate across television and film for the U.K., U.S. and international market and will also manage the editorial team while continuing his own work as an executive producer on selected projects.

Aird said: “It’s difficult to leave Two Brothers as I’ve loved working there, but the opportunity to be creative director at one of the most exciting scripted production companies in Europe is too good to pass up. Everything Element has made—from The Lobster to Room to Normal People and Conversations With Friends—shows such commitment to realizing writers’ and directors’ visions. I’m looking forward to working with Ed, Andrew and the team.”

Guiney and Andrew Lowe, founders and co-CEOs of Element Pictures, added: “Chris is an extraordinary producer and shares our DNA with his keen eye for quality and detail. We couldn’t be more delighted to have him join the team during such an exciting time for Element as we continue to expand and build our slate going forward.”
