The premiere of the groundbreaking film aims to help you understand the struggles of independent filmmakers and provide an in-depth analysis of the independent film industry. 

The film was originally intended to explore the process of selling a script at the Sundance Film Festival. However, it became much more when Bill Jacobson pitched the idea of filming a “documentary within a documentary.”

Julian Starks is the main subject of the film, and he is no stranger to sacrifice and adversity. At the beginning of production, Starks was effectively homeless. Despite being forced to live out of his SUV due to limited financial resources, he put all of his energy into telling a compelling story about the most important event in independent filmmaking.

To make his dream a reality, Starks needed a team. First, he partnered with Bill Jacobson and Jennifer Sorenson, who worked both as actors and producers in the realization of the film. The team slowly grew to include many talented members, including directors of photography, Todd Kirschner and Adam Tash and cameraman and editor, Spencer Averick. 

You can see the talent of the film’s cast of actors, which includes Tim Coyne, Terrence Kava, Kyle Mayer, Georgia Ragsdale, and Lenny Herb. 

In addition to depicting the team’s struggles with the many obstacles associated with independent filmmaking, “A Journey To Sundance,” gives you an in-depth look at the plight of other independent filmmakers from around the world. 

By chance, Robert Redford, founder of the Sundance Film Festival and primary subject of the film, saw the documentary in 2012 and encouraged Starks to re-shoot it, which resulted in the final product you can see today.

The company’s team understands the importance of community engagement. You can connect with Starks directly at

A spokesperson said: “‘A Journey To Sundance’ examines the crushing reality of the fierce competition of the motion picture industry and the struggles of many young directors.”
