Movie Making requires a team. There are three of us on the MakinMovies team, each with complementary skills and experience. We will each appear in the courses to give you a perspective on how a team works together to achieve a particular movie-making goal. We are:
Julian Darley, writer/ director

He then went on to work for story guru Robert McKee and collaborated with Lawrence Bender (Tarantino’s producer) on a number of ultra-low budget films such as Nancy Reagan’s Out Of A Job. In the 1990s, Julian pursued an academic career gaining two masters degrees. In North America, starting in 2001, Julian built the system and created the content for one of the world’s first Internet broadcasting stations.
