Adrien is a New York based filmmaker and photographer, currently finishing his thesis for the MBA-MFA dual degree program at NYU.

Born in Paris and raised in London, Adrien discovered his passion for storytelling while working on the set of Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mister Fox. After spending a few years in the advertising world as a copywriter, he took a leap of faith and began film school.

Quickly developing a strong fascination for the intersection of documentary and narrative films, he made his first documentary “Train Surfers” in India. The film premiered at AFI Fest, was Vimeo Staff Picked and acquired by National Geographic.

His latest project “Rodeo Queen”, a film on the beauty pageant side of the Western world, debuted at the Sheffield Doc Festival and was later acquired and distributed by the Wrangler Network.
