Director X


Creative Rain

An inductee of Canada’s Walk of Fame, the country’s crowning jewel of excellence and achievement, Julien is one of the most iconic music video directors of our time, known for his work with Drake, Rihanna, Rosalia, Kendrick Lamar, and Kanye West, to name a few.

As a filmmaker, Julien debuted his first Sony studio feature film, Superfly, produced by the legendary Joel Silver. This past summer Julien worked as Creator, Showrunner and Executive Producer of his first original TV series Robyn Hood. As an artist, Julien has created art installations for Toronto’s Nuit Blanche: Death of The Sun, also featured in Drake’s Boy Meets World European tour and Life of The Earth, in collaboration with the Ontario Science Center.

In addition, Julien uses his platform for social change and founded Operation Prefrontal Cortex, an initiative created to reduce Toronto’s gun violence through mindfulness and meditation. A highly intelligent speaker, Julien shares his point of view on creativity, innovation, wellness, and community and how bettering ourselves and those around us is the way to ensure a more peaceful, compassionate world.

At the Banff Media Festival, we met with Netflix and took a ride up Sulphur Mountain on the gondola. That’s where we made the pitch.
