Marriott\ s Content Studio to release second film.
Marriott International's Content Studio has teamed up with Marriott Hotels to produce and release French Kiss, the Studio's second short film.
The film follows hot on the heels of the Content Studio's debut production, Two Bellmen , which has had five million views on YouTube since its February release.
Marking the first international production of the Studio, French Kiss, a romantic mystery, is set to premiere across the globe on May 19.
The film, shot at Marriott Hotel Champs-Elysee, stars Tyler Ritter and is the result of a creative collaboration with producers Ian Sander and Kim Moses of Sander/Moses & SLAM.
David Beebe, vice president creative and content marketing at Marriott International said: "I am thrilled to have Tyler starring in our latest film and I have admired Kim and Ian's work for many years.
"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 '3Cs' 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."
French Kiss follows a magical romance in which Ethan (Tyler Ritter) is a young American obsessed with work, visiting the French capital to speak at an innovation conference at the Paris Marriott Hotel Champs ...lysees.
Admired from afar by Margaux (French model and actress Margot Luciarte), Ethan is tricked into following her string of clues throughout the city, forcing him to explore, imagine and literally see the magic of Paris through her eyes.
All the while, he wonders if his guide is real, or a mystical muse with magical powers that give him a glimpse of a life that seems like a dream. In the end, he finds out.
Kim Moses, executive producer of French Kiss said: "We loved having the opportunity to work with Marriott in supporting its commitment to produce high-quality, entertaining content globally.
"In an era when everyone has their eyes glued to their digital devices, French Kiss delivers the universal message that the best way to travel brilliantly is: eyes forward. It's what Ethan discovers as he's led on a magical journey by the mysterious Margaux."
