I'm a filmmaker and photographer, working, adapting, evolving for over twenty five years. I've done a bundle of  totally unrelated, creatively detached projects from filming people in lycra on skates (Starlight Express 3D), to photographing an epic reenactment of the life and times of William Shakespeare (Harper Collins) to filming the first ever 3D aerials over London (The London Eye 4D Experience) to bringing the operas Carmen and Madam Butterfly to the big screen in 3D for Royal Opera House and RealD, to making camomile tea for Steven Spielberg (HOOK 1991 - I was a runner and even have an on screen credit).


I've also given 3D panel talks at NAB, MIPCOM, Cannes, BVE, and been a technical consultant for SKY TV  the BBC and the Chinese Ministry of Culture in Beijing so someone out there thinks I know what I'm talking about even if I'm still winging it most of the time and trying not to take myself too seriously.    


Every act of creation is a pushback against the forces of destruction. Knit a scarf, turn a pot, build a treehouse, write a song. We have a spiritual duty to create and it's more fun in company, so get in touch if you fancy battling the forces of destruction together.


"I have been involved in many stage to screen productions but never anything of this outstanding quality... The impact of the opera is greater than I have ever known it to be"

Sir. Trevor Nunn (on Carmen in 3D)

"Julian has an understanding of 3D second to none, that only comes from real experience and many years trail blazing 3D production."

Phil McNally (Stereographer on Shrek 3rd, Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon)

"With his outstanding body of work, Julian is without doubt the most talented 3D director working in the UK today." 

Phil Streather (Producer - BUGS IMAX 3D, Madam Butterfly 3D, Carmen 3D, Meerkats 3D, Hidden Kingdoms 3D)

"Come work at Amblin"

Steven Speilberg (True Story)
