Julian Robinet is a director of photography from Cologne, Germany. After continuously visiting Cape Town over the last 10 years, he has moved from Germany and now calls Cape Town home.
Julian’s career began with his personal love for films. Having spent a good part of his youth as a professional windsurfer, Julian put his love for film into action by shooting sports clips with his DSLR.
He is fascinated by elements in motion and focused his work in the past two years on shooting advertorials for blue-chip clients such as Mercedes Benz, SMART and BMW.”
His style ranges from rough honest handheld to beautifully composed motion driven imagery. Recently he started experimenting with combining them both.
Before deciding to put all his effort into filmmaking, he successfully worked as a Photographer. His main influences are Music, Nature and Surfing.
Nowadays, his work as a director of photography for commercials, advertorials documentaries and Sports films takes him around the world: from Iceland to South Africa across Maui to Malaysia. He still draws the same excitement and joy from making films as he did when he started.
Being very collective-minded he frequently collaborates with friends and fellow artists.
His skills in Editing help not only to sophisticate his strong vision but also a profound understanding of each aspect that flows into the creation of a film.
