Heartbreak! Intrigue! Love! Death! These are all words that Julia Pott knows how to spell.
An animator of the extraordinary, Julia’s distinct sensitivity may well have been pried from the still beating heart of a magical rainbow, or cleaved off the back of the mighty wooly mammoth. There is no one working today who can drink even a fraction of the milkshakes she can, and still have room left for root beer.
Julia’s short films have been viewed and adored by millions, most notable of which is Belly. The film, having screened at Sundance and SXSW in 2013, has collected awards from multiple award shows including the San Francisco International Film Festival, Chicago Film Festival and Clermont Ferrand International Film Festival to name only a few.
Julia has also enjoyed a considerable amount of commercial success including projects for clients such as Channel 4, MTV, musical artist Bat for Lashes, Etsy, indie band The Decemberists, J.Crew, Malibu Rum and Toyota. In 2012, she was named one of the 25 New Faces of Independent Film by Filmmaker Magazine. And just a glance at any of her animations, or a quick read of her whimsical contributions to the Huffington Post will explain why her fan base continues to expand.
