Julien was actually encouraged to make films by his brother at the start of his career. In 2012 his YouTube channel really took off with his initial dance videos. But as early as 2011 he was part of a four-man film crew called JuBaFilms. This group of four guys produced everything themselves, from the script to the music to the editing. The skills he learned in the process still benefit him today, because according to his own statements, he learned everything himself during this time.
His first own video, which he produced himself, appeared on his channel in early 2012. Just two years later, he and his friend Cheng Loew founded the “FlyingBandas channel”. In this project, he shines above all with slow-motion videos. Soon after, in 2015 and 2016, two more channels named Julien Bam and Bam Crew were created due to the great success. Two channels namely “FlyingBandas” and “Bam Crew” are now defunct, however its two active channels are still very successful.

In the following years he was used as a testimonial for a Fanta advertising campaign, and he also dubbed characters in several films such as: Despicable Me 3, Everest – A Yeti Wants High or in the 2019 film Sonic.
Other songs were released, but they could not build on the success of his hit single “Ai Ni”.
