BETHESDA, Md. ― Marriott International’s Content Studio has teamed with the company’s flagship brand, Marriott Hotels, to produce French Kiss, its second original short film.
French Kiss comes on the heels of the successful debut film, Two Bellmen, which has five-million views on YouTube. Shot in and around Paris, and at the Paris Marriott Hotel Champs-Elysees, French Kiss marks the studio’s first international production.
“I have admired Kim [Moses] and Ian [Sander’s] work for many years,” said David Beebe, VP, Creative and Content Marketing at Marriott International. “Not only are they innovative storytellers, but they were among the first producers to understand and execute a multi-platform distribution strategy. French Kiss will propel our three C’s strategy of producing entertaining and informative content that builds communities of people passionate about travel who will drive commerce to our company’s global portfolio of hotels.”
The romantic mystery will premiere worldwide May 19 in a multi-platform, all-screens distribution strategy, including digital, theatre, in-room, online, Marriott.com and to Marriott’s 47-million Marriott Reward members.
