Captain Lance Julian remembers when the Titanic sank. He even had a hand in it.
He watched as the sailors on the doomed ship lowered their passengers into the lifeboats, and shivered with more than just cold as he heard the band play their final song. It was all so real, he recalls.
From his perspective, that’s a good thing. After all, it’s his job to create lifelike scenes on the water.
“You really felt this whole thing that was happening,” he says.
With his son Captain Harry Julian, Captain Lance is at the helm of Marine Team International, which provides professional marine consulting and management to top movie and television studios. Since founding the Marine Team in 1994, the company has worked on countless films, including “Titanic” and, most recently, “The Hangover Part 2,” which opened Thursday in local theaters.
Locally, the Julians also own and operate Cruise Naples, a tour boat and rental company that operates out of Tin City. They bought the company two years ago and are working to expand their offerings with new equipment and tour offerings.
