Former Business Lawyer from Paris, France, Louis moved to Los Angeles in 2013 to study filmmaking and screenwriting at the New York Film Academy in Burbank. In September 2016, Louis got graduated with a bachelor in filmmaking and a certificate in screenwriting.
During those years at the NYFA, Louis Tete worked on improving and practicing his filmmaking and screenwriting skills by writing, shooting and producing short forms contents such as "Blood Lies", "Locked Down" and "PIMPS" as well as working for his fellow classmates with whom he became good friends and future collaborators.
Once graduated and dropped in the Hollywood industry jungle, Louis worked on numerous projects with different budget ranges mostly as a Grip and PA for independent filmmakers and acquaintances to keep improving his skills set, add connections to his roaster for future collaborations while working on his own materials as a filmmaker/writer/producer with recent experimental projects such as "The Dufflejolt" and "Nuke".
However, Louis knew that sets gigs were not enough to understand how the industry actually works and were only one aspect about the creation of a film. Therefore he decided to intern at different production companies dealing with different aspects of a film's life such as the Sean Daniel company, responsible for "THE WITCHER" starring Henry Cavill, Frederic Golchan Production responsible for the late Rebel Wilson's romantic comedy "ISN'T IT ROMANTIC" with Liam Hemsworth, The Robb Company a talent agency with actors working on series such as "THE LAST SHIP" and lately in 2018 for Tricoast Media, a distribution/acquisition company with under the belt movies such as 2017 "CHINA SALESMAN" starring Mike Tyson and Steven Seagal.
Those internships taught Louis the various stages of a film's life from pré-prod to distribution, allowed him to improve his connections roaster within the industry no matter the stage of the project as well as becoming proficient in the art of script coverage.
From the start Louis understood the power of networking with fellows industry players and especially maintaining those relationships. Therefore participating to networking events, festivals, webinars, premieres.... quickly became a second nature.
Louis is currently working as writer/director and producer on a horror/survival called "WE EXIST" about women's empowerment. The shoot is scheduled for February 2019 and working as a writer on a whodunit mystery called "HOTEL FORMINO", scheduled to be shot in June 2019.
Communication, respect, professionalism and dedication are keys words for Louis who doesn't expect less from his present and future collaborators. Hence, if you need anything, please don't hesitate to contact him it would be his genuine pleasure to help because at one point or another, we've all been in the same situation.
Keep create and keep dreaming because sky isn't the limit, only your own motivation is.
Best to all.
