In the summer of 2020 Julien adapted his short film into a feature film, writing a 1st draft. As with all 1st drafts he has locked it into a draw, to reopen in the future. He is collaborating with the producer Karina Michel Feld of Tallulhah Films in developing the project. She cannot find the key to the draw. He was later contacted by Authority Magazine who labelled him as a 'Rising Star' filmmaker.
