While studying Film at Rhode Island School of Design, Julian honed his craft working for Shepard Fairey at Obey Giant, Shilo NYC, and Wes Anderson. His time at RISD culminated in directing an award winning narrative film entitled Obey The Giant, about the early life of Shepard Fairey and the origin of his Obey Giant street art campaign.
Since then, he has directed the renowned docu-short We Are George Floyd (Webby winner and People’s Voice winner for Best Shortform Documentary) and built a career developing feature films and directing commercials for a wide variety of clients, including Google, Under Armour, Amazon, Intel, Spectrum, Red Bull, HP, Toyota, Nissan, Ford, BMW, Verizon, and BET. Julian was recently honored in Shots Creative’s inaugural edition of the Black Filmmakers Showcase, and Reel 360 also featured him in ‘The Reel Black List,’ their annual spotlight of talented black artists and directors in the worlds of advertising, film, and TV.
