About Julian

Julian Galea is an award winning director and freelance video creator based in Sydney, Australia.

He studied filmmaking at NYFA in New York and worked under some amazingly talented directors like Emmy award winner Reed Morano (The Handmaid's Tale) and George Tillman Jr. (The Longest Ride).

Julian built a portfolio of shorts and music videos, including work with model and actress Kate Upton, until making his feature film debut in 2017 with Love to Paradise. The film premiered at Malta International Film Festival winning Best Film following screenings at festivals internationally. It was released theatrically in Australia and Malta and reached iTunes’ Top 3.

Julian is a distinctive director who often shoots as well as directs the films he writes. His eye for emotive visual storytelling and ear for authentic dialogue with an romantically sensitive perspective uniquely defines his work, including his next feature film Made in Malta (coming soon). 

A multi-skilled screen storyteller, Julian consistently pushes the creative envelope to produce fresh, engaging and impactful cinematic stories across all modern platforms and formats.
