After graduating from film school in NYC, Julia spent her early years working in documentary film. This experience has helped her in establishing close relationships with her subjects, and bringing that trust and intimacy to the screen.
Her cross- disciplinary approach to filmmaking is what led her to Direct a 2021 VANS Pride campaign. Vans commissioned Julia to direct a series of photographs and docu-styled profiles on different artists, to be displayed in VANS stores across America. During the process, Julia made it her personal mission to develop the scripts with the artists, as well as establishing a trust with the clients for her process.
During the recent lockdowns Julia chose to hone in on her skills as a fine artist and photographer to further her unique visual style. You could often find her in her studio, or in a darkroom developing and printing her own photographs.
If there is any need for proof that Julia quickly masters whatever she turns her attention to, Julia then collaborated with the screen writers and feature directors “The Roberts Sisters”, as DoP on their first full length feature film “The Country Club”.
This quirky take on professional female golf has been billed as a compelling vibrant cross between “Napoleon Dynamite” and “The Royal Tennenbaums” and is set to sweep the independent awards in 2022.
