ABOUT THE FILMMAKER/PHOTOGRAPHER/ACTOR:  Julian Starks has been a force in the world of the Arts for most of his adult life. Julian began his career in New York City as an established working actor, having studied under acting teacher legends, SANFORD MEISNERand BOBBY LEWIS, as well as Martin Barter at the famous Neighborhood Playhouse Theater in many mediums including theater, independent film and national television shows and commercials. He studied at THE SCHOOL OF VISUAL ARTSin New York and eventually decided to move

to Los Angeles to further his education at the UCLA SCHOOL

OF FILMand the LOS ANGELES FILM SCHOOLand to further his opportunities in filmmaking and television. He later


in the Los Angeles area and continued his passion for storytelling

in a new medium… It is this medium that best offers us the pleasure of sharing Julian’s love of animals as he presents. LIFE BEHIND BARS VOL. 1, his first Fine Art Photography Book. (Released Worldwide in 2020)   


“A JOURNEY TO SUNDANCE”, his first independent feature length documentary film. (Released Worldwide in 2021) 


This film intertwines the story of the fabled Sundance Film

Festival with the story of the struggles a filmmaker endures to create an independent film and finally, the triumph of presenting

it to the public.


Julian has spent much of the last several years following his passion for wild animals by traveling the world to photograph

them in both natural and confined settings. He began to

appreciate that without sanctuaries and sometimes,

unfortunately, confinement, many species would soon perish

or become dangerously close to extinction.


Julian invites you to become more aware and to join in the

worthy fight to save a place on this earth for these noble creatures to survive!
