Julien has been working on films since he was in elementary school. Throughout his teens he wrote, directed, and edited shorts, music videos, and feature films. In his late teens he was hired at NBC to help launch their viral media division. Eventually he moved to Game Show Network where he wrote, produced, and edited TV spots. During this time in Los Angeles, Julien’s love affair with Motion GFX took off, and became an all consuming hobby turned job. Julien moved to Bellingham, WA in 2013 where he shot and edited ski documentaries, before finally arriving at Hand Crank Films. Julien enjoys reading, writing, designing, filming, and rock climbing in his free time.
