Born in Germany, Julian R. Wagner started his career in the field of photography, then transitioned to design studies at BOLZANO UNIVERSITY in Italy, followed by production design at the FILMACADEMY BADEN-WÜRTTEMBERG, where he received a scholarship for a masterclass workshop at UCLA, USA.
After winning the FÖRDERPREIS DEUTSCHER FILM for outstanding artistic achievement on his feature debut COLOR OF THE OCEAN, Julian’s strong interest in sci-fi and fantasy led him to collaborate with Lennart Ruff’s sci-fi drama TITAN – EVOLVE OR DIE and Tim Fehlbaum’s TIDES, which earned him several awards, including the 2021 GERMAN FILM AWARD for best Production Design. His filmography also includes the apocalyptic series TRIBES OF EUROPA for Netflix and the recently completed show THE SWARM, from Game of Thrones Executive Producer Frank Doelger.
