Julien Pretorius

Julien got into filmmaking because of the opportunities that films have to change the world, and if one person’s perspective changes due to something Julien’s made, then this goal of changing the world has been achieved. Attending SAIT has opened up Julien’s parameters to consider films from around the world and across time. With plans to work in the industry post graduation, Julien would like to pursue becoming a Writer and Director in the future, but will first be continuing education at the University of Calgary.


Julien’s favourite movies are The Matrix (1999), The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013) and Into the Wild (2007), with favourite directors being, Robert Rodriguez, Robert Bresson and the Wachowskis.
