Hi, I'm Julien Sobel

Aspiring documentary filmmaker, photographer, and obscure Wikipedia fact enthusiast

I am majoring in Documentary Production (B.A.) and Politics (B.A.), minor in Anthropology and Linguistics at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York

My work is mainly focused in documentary film production, though I dabble in photography and writing. I tend to focus my work on climate, human and migrant rights, political and social activism, and language. I am also fluent in French and Spanish, and can do some translation and interpretation from those languages into English. 

I mainly keep the video section of this site up to date. I sometimes add photo stuff, though in general that entire section should be revised at some point. I tend not to post my writing, though that may change in the future. ​​​
Latest Short: Festival Against Hate
Ithaca, NY – October 26, 2020
Video I made during the Back the Blue rally and Festival Against Hate counter-protest hate this last October. I was granted access to the space by Ithaca Pantheras and the Ithaca DSA, for which I am very grateful.
