Damien Chazelle Biography

Damien Chazelle is a Harvard-educated musician, director and screenwriter. Chazelle’s breakout hit, Whiplash, began as a proof-of-concept short film which debuted at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and eventually attracted attention from financiers who helped to finance the full-length version. The drama about a jazz drummer and his abusive teacher would go on to receive critical acclaim and win three Academy Awards. Then, in 2016, Chazelle made a huge mark with the box office hit La La Land, a modern movie musical, which won seven Golden Globes, including a best director nod for Chazelle. The film was also nominated for a record 14 Oscars, earning Chazelle the Academy Award for Best Director. Chazelle is the youngest filmmaker to receive both best director awards at the age of 32. Aside from filmmaking, Chazelle has ventured into television with "The Eddy," an eight-episode Netflix miniseries set in Paris.
