About

COLE WEBLEY

Co-Founder / Director

Cole grew up in rural central Washington the third of six boys and the son of a farmer. His road to becoming a filmmaker was paved by a constant diet of John Wayne and 90s action films. Short of becoming a professional baseball player, he had only one goal: make films. Fortunately, it wasn't long before he realized his best shot was to put down the bat and pick up a camera. Since then he's gone on to direct award-winning short films and Super-Bowl-winning commercials (according to AdWeek). He's currently developing his first feature through UTA and Anonymous Content management.


JULIAN ACOSTA

Co-Founder / Director

Julian arose from meager circumstances in Bakersfield, CA and was the first member of his family to graduate from college. He enjoyed playing drums in various bands and bounced around the States in his early twenties. It was a cross-country road trip from Utah to Wisconsin to produce a no-budget music video for his favorite indie band that awakened him to filmmaking. Since that time he has sought out original stories to tell in his own, unique style.


JARED HARRIS

Co-Founder / Executive Producer

There’s a story Jared likes to tell about the first shoot he ever produced for Cole & Julian. It was a small music video they were shooting at the Springville Art Museum. The night before the shoot they told him they needed three ladders for rigging lights outside the large windows. With no money to rent them Jared drove around late into the night (in a snow storm) asking friends and acquaintances if he could borrow their ladder. The next morning much to their surprise Jared showed up with the three requested ladders - Jared believes it is for this reason they continued to have him back. Cole and Julian do not remember this happening.
