LOS ANGELES—Two Bellmen, the first original short film production from Marriott International, Inc.’s Content Studio, will have its world premiere on March 10, 2015 with a global YouTube launch, as well as a gala screening and party at the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE. The property plays a starring role in the film.

A collaboration between the Content Studio and dance, parkour, extreme sports, martial arts and music collective Substance Over Hype, Two Bellmen was directed by Daniel “Malakai” Cabrera and written by Cabrera and Jade Raybin.
