DAMIEN CHAZELLE [Director, Screenwriter] most
recently wrote and directed the Academy Award winning Whiplash. Released in
2014 by Sony Pictures Classics Whiplash received five Academy Award
nominations, including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay for Chazelle,
and three wins, including Best Supporting Actor for J.K. Simmons. His 2013
short, based on the Whiplash screenplay, won the Short Film Jury Prize at
Sundance, and the following year the feature film took home both the Jury and
Audience Awards from the festival.
Previously, Chazelle wrote Magnolia Picture's Grand Piano, starring Elijah Wood
and John Cusack and co-wrote Paramount's hit thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane,
starring John Goodman. His screenplays for Whiplash and The Claim both appeared
on the Blacklist.
Chazelle made his first feature film Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench, as an
undergraduate at Harvard University. The critically acclaimed musical was named
"the Best First Feature of 2010" by L.A. Weekly and "easily the best first film
in eons" by Time Out New York.
