 regista Damien ChazelleDAMIEN CHAZELLE
Damien Chazelle is an American screenwriter and director, best known for his two feature films "Whiplash" (2014) and "La La Land" (2016). His film "Whiplash" was nominated for 5 Oscars, including Best Picture, and won 3, for Editing, Sound Mixing, and Best Supporting Actor (J.K. Simmons). "La La Land" earned Chazelle 14 Academy Award nominations, and 6 wins, including Best Director. Chazelle currently holds the record for youngest winner in the category of Best Director. Chazelle was born in Rhode Island in 1985, and initially wanted to be a jazz drummer. He gave up the dream of becoming a musician after high school and went to Harvard to study filmmaking in the Visual and Environmental Studies department. It was at Harvard University that he met some of the key collaborators in his professional career, among them former wife and producer Jasmine McGlade, and composer Justin Hurwitz. Chazelle's first dual credit as writer and director was for the 2009 black and white micro-budget jazz musical "Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench" (originally planned as his thesis project for Harvard Film School). When he experienced writer's block writing the script for La La Land, Chazelle decided to free himself up with a new script about a jazz drummer. So, instead, he made a short film of the same name which was accepted and won in the short film category at Sundance Film Festival in 2013, and became a proof of concept film for the feature. He then secured the backing of producers and raised the money for the feature that was released in 2014. Chazelle wrote the screenplay for his next hit, the romantic musical comedy-drama "La La Land", in 2010. It premiered at the 2016 Venice Film Festival and was released in the US on 9th December 2016. In 2018, he directed "First Man".
