Marriott Content Studio has released its first short film, the stunt-filled “Two Bellmen.”
Directed by Daniel “Malakai” Cabrera, “Two Bellmen” follows, well, two bellmen who start off as rivals and become friends through stopping an attempted art theft in a Marriott hotel (so it makes sense that the heroes of the story are all Marriott employees).
Marriott collaborated with Substance Over Hype, a group that focuses on dance, extreme sports, parkour, martial arts, and music, to create the film, which means that the actors engage in some serious moves. Hollywood stuntmen William Spencer and Caine Sinclair star in “Two Bellmen” alongside cast members Henry Simmons, Miles Brown, Sophina Brown, and dancers Josue “Beastmode” Antonio and Stephen “Twitch” Boss.
The film is available for free on YouTube. Marriott also plans to release it in a small number of theaters and in JW Marriott guest rooms (as well as other digital platforms, such as its own dedicated website, TwoBellmen.com).
This Marriott Content Studio project runs for just over 17 minutes, making it one of its longer projects. The hotel chain’s video division has also collaborated with plenty of digital talent on short-form offerings, most recently co-producing a video project with What’s Trending, featuring multiple YouTubers like Meghan Camarena (Strawburry17) and Steve Zaragoza from SourceFed.
