Julia has recently started moving into writing for and making films. She was completed the inaugural Write4Film course run by the Scottish Film Talent Network in which she was mentored by script editor Anna Seifert Speck and attended workshops and one to one mentoring sessions with some of the UK's leading film writers and script editors including Kate Leys, Paul Fraser and Phil Parker.
DUCK DAZE, Julia’s first short film script is in preproduction, due to start shooting in December 2018. DUCK DAZE is about a middle aged woman who is at last ready to face up to the abuse from her past and wrestle with her personal demons - which include an imaginary duck. It is a unique, darkly comic and highly personal tale of survival and triumph created in the wake of Me Too, written and directed by women with a cast of 3:1 women to men - and a duck. Commissioned by the Scottish Film Talent Network.
REBEL GIRL (feature) is a feminist Fight Club. Set in a city like any major city you’ve ever been to in the white Western world, it is about a woman on a quest to make the world a better place but who realises she is part of the problem and so blows up the bank she works for with herself inside. The action moves between the worlds of macho elite corporate finance and anarchic, anti-capitalist activism and follows Uma’s journey from ethical banker to domestic terrorist. Inspired by Julia's hit feminist punk-rock gig-theatre show Blow Off, the film features original songs that the writer owns the rights to. Treatment stage.
