Alain Nouvel is the filmmaker behind State (Remix), a low-budget feature film he wrote, directed, edited, and produced. Alain got his start in the film business in New York City in 2009 as a set runner on an independent feature film called Finding Julia and as a video editor for companies like Warby Parker, Lenovo, and Search Party Music. One day, Alain landed a job as Director’s Assistant to three-time Sundance Best Cinematography Award winner Ellen Kuras. For the next year, he worked alongside her in that role. She inspired him to make State (Remix), his first feature film. Watch it on Amazon Prime
