WHO ARE WE?
An independent video production company from Montreal, Canada, Beanduck was founded in 2012 by director Julian Stamboulieh and producer Benjamin Warner.
Shortly after Beanduck’s inception, the company received great critical and creative acclaim with the web series LARPs - a collaboration with writer Jon Verrall and housed on Felicia Day's Geek & Sundry, a part of Legendary's Digital Network.
Fan integration and engagement is at the core of Beanduck’s mandate. The success of LARPs demonstrated the importance of not simply telling a story to a community, but with a community.
The company excels at producing content with a geek flair, using creative and innovative platforms to reach audiences. A Beanduck production taps into a network of talented Montreal artists and creators to tell stories with humour, heart and ingenuity.
ARTISTIC & EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Director and actor with a BFA in Photography, Julian approaches projects with a playful yet critical eye. He values the audience first and foremost, always striving to provide them an experience that’s fun and original, as well as intelligent and respectful. Growing up as a “Sega boy”, he is as passionate about gaming today as he was when he stayed up past his bedtime playing Sonic.
Beatrice majored in film production, graduating with a bachelor in fine arts with distinction from Concordia University in Montreal. As Beanduck’s main producer, her focus is always to create the highest production value in the company’s work in the most efficient way possible. With a long history in performance both on stage as well as on a piano bench, Beatrice has always felt immense pride in entertaining audiences, a feeling she carries with her every day at Beanduck Productions.
