Chojnacki's film career started when he was nine years old. While growing
up in Toronto Canada, Julian began exploring the art of film using
his father's wind up 8mm film camera. His passion and drive for
filmmaking continued throughout the years and in 1982, Julian participated
in the prestigious International Film Workshop Program in Rockport, Maine.
Here he learned the skill of Steadicam Operating from the inventor
and master, Garrett Brown.
Through his 30 years as a Camera/Steadicam Operator, Julian has had
the privilege of working closely with many of the industry's most talented
and accomplished Directors and Cinematographers.
It is through this experience that Julian was able to 'learn from the
best' and develop his own style and vision as a Director. A well-deserved opportunity
came in 1995 to Direct while working on the CBS TV series, "Nash
Bridges" being filmed in San Francisco. During his years with "Nash
Bridges," Julian directed 8 episodes and on occasion, simultaneously
directed and operated the camera. Since moving to Los Angeles in 2000,
Julian has directed additional episodic TV, such as "The
District" and "The Strip." He
also Directed the TV movie, "A Mother's Testimony" for
the Lifetime Network, starring Kate Jackson, as well 2nd Unit Director
and Cinematographer on the film "Friday after Next"
starring Ice Cube.
Julian was privileged when asked to shoot one of the first 3D films using
the "run and gun" style of being on location. As Main operator,
Steadicam, Technocrane and Underwater operator on "Final
Destination 4: 3D", Julian became well adapted in 3D filmmaking.
He was instrumental in refining the Cameron/Pace 3D camera set up for
Steadicam used in Final Destination.
Additional accomplishments have Julian as Director for the short film,
'Heartburn' starring Dennis Haysbert: produced by Seymour
Productions currently in post-production and DP on a feature film, "The
Novelist" starring Eric Roberts; a Jon Goodman Entertainment
Production, which was recently shot in Los Angeles, CA. He has written,
directed, shot and edited numerous music videos of all genres.
Julian Chojnacki and Producer, Laura Mary Clarke, founded TAKE 8 Films
in June, 2010; a Film, TV & Music Video production company based in
Nashville, TN, with an affiliated office in Los Angeles, CA. Julian and
Laura's partnership as Director, Producer, writer and editor have created
