Los Angeles is one of the most substantial economic engines within the United States, with a diverse economy in a broad range of professional and cultural fields. Los Angeles is also famous as the home of Hollywood, a major center of the world entertainment industry.

The City of Los Angeles and often known by its initials L.A. is the new home of filmmaker Adrien Boublil.

He earned his stripes early growing up between London, Paris and New York in a family of artists who gave him the flair for storytelling.

Upon graduating from the Lycée Français de New York, he opted to forego a traditional college education to fully invest in his passion for filmmaking.

At only 17, Adrien Boublil wrote and directed YELO, a short film that earned him nominations at the Hoboken Film Festival, the IFQ Film Festival and a special private screening at the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL.

At 18, Adrien journeys to the west coast to make his follow-up project, STILL, a devastatingly beautiful piece that earned the best film prize at the IndieFest and won the Peer Raben Award for the best score.

In 2019, Boublil directed his first music video entitled IS THIS LOVE? for rising performer Maxime.

Maxime is a french songwriter and producer living in L.A. The Singer-Songwriter Maxime has just released his debut album ‘The Honest Me Pt 1’. Maxime hails from France where his passion for songwriting began but he now resides in the vibrant city of Los Angeles where he continues to bring his words to life. Alongside the release of ‘The Honest Me Pt 1’, Maxime dropped a string of material with an amazing leading single music video, ‘Is this Love’ directed by Adrien Boublil.

In its first week, it clocked in over 26,000 Youtube views. It won the Los Angeles Film and Script Festival, it was nominated at the New York Shorts International Film Festival, the Edmonton Film Festival, the World Music and Independent Film Festival, the Marblehead Film Festival and it was shown as the opening film of Sophia Vergara and Joe Manganiello’s “Bottom of the 9th” at the prestigious Maui Film Festival.
