The management: Alexandre Piot
Born in 1977 in Grenoble (France), Alexandre Piot began his very young career as a musician and performer. He acquired his first experiences with the media when he released his first single in 1990. A graduate of Coventry University in England, he moved to London where he became a sound engineer and then artistic director of many projects. In 2003, Alexandre and his business partner Roman Jurik founded UPL, a video and multimedia production company still based in London.
UPL is quickly recognised, producing numerous corporate films and music videos for prestigious clients such as Sony, EMI, Universal, BT, HSBC and Westminster Council. Alexandre is associate producer of the horror movie “Temptation”, which won the Gorezone Award for Best British Horror Film. He continues with the documentary film on “Ibiza, And The Beat Goes On”.
In 2009, he founded UPL France and produced “Les Amours Secrètes”, a feature film with Anémone and Richard Bohringer. The film is a success in France. UPL is also distributor of the film and DVD.
After several film productions, in 2016, Alexandre produced his first musical at the Salle Gaveau in Paris. It was a great success: “Oliver Twist Le Musical”.
Since then, Alexandre now has 3 entities in Paris, UPL LIVE, UPL MUSIC and UPL FILMS.
