He then co-founded and is CEO of the production group Align Pictures. He held various production and financing roles through uMedia, including films such as: The Artist (2011), Grace of Monaco (2014), I Kill Giants (2017), and Mandy (2018). He also produced on the TV series My Brilliant Friend. With Align, he produces on the upcoming films Good Luck to You, Leo Grande (2022), Le Petit Nicolas (2022) and is an executive producer on the Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank. Politowski was born in Sweden. His birth name is Murshid, and he is of Polish and Bangladeshi descent. On the paternal side, he is the grandson of Nurjahan Murshid and Khan Sarwar Murshid. On the maternal side, he is the grandson of Mieczyslaw Politowski. Politowski attended Oxford University / Somerville College from 1996, receiving a Master of Engineering in 2000, and a Master of Philosophy in Economics in 2002. Politowski married fellow producer Nadia Khamlichi. Together with his ex-wife, they have one son, born 2012.Adrian is currently with Swedish model/influencer Amanda Gyllensparv. He "currently splits his time between Los Angeles, Brussels and Stockholm". Politowski and his partners Nadia Khamlichi (his ex-wife) and Jeremy Burdek founded Motion Investment Group in 2004 in Brussels, Belgium. In 2010, the group rebranded as Umedia (formerly stylized uMedia), with business divisions of "uFund (fundraising), uFilm (production and investment), uDream (distribution) and uFX (visual effects)." In 2011, the Umedia website reported it had staffed 75 employees, co-produced and financed 120 films, raised and invested 156 million euros. Umedia finances production through its Belgian Tax Shelter Fund. The company has 3 operating VFX facilities: in Brussels, Paris and Vancouver. Politowski is a member of the Advisory Board of WIFTI (Women in Film and TV International) and the Board of Directors of gaming/VFX company Goodbye Kansas. In 2019, Politowski and Khamlichi co-founded and launched the production company Align Pictures, where he plans to focus on producing fewer films but have more involvement in them. He resigned from his position as co-CEO of the Umedia, leaving Khamlichi to remain as CEO. In 2020, Politowski sold his remaining stake in Umedia. Align is headquartered in Los Angeles, and has greenlighted funds to finance feature films and television. Align also financed animated films Little Nicholas (which is in the Special Screenings of the official 2022 Cannes selection), Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank, and Kensuke's Kingdom. Politowski is producing the Hulu original -- Good Luck to You, Leo Grande, starring Academy Award winning British actress Emma Thompson. The film is scheduled to be released on June 17, 2022.
