Julia Gazdag is a writer, producer, and photographer. Originally from Budapest, she has lived in New York, Los Angeles, and now resides in London.

After earning a bachelor's in Cultural Studies at the New School, Julia worked on several TV shows for CBS and FOX, assistant edited on a few indie features, and associate produced the sold out show SpeakEasy at the Public Theatre. She spent a decade working with Sundance's Feature Film Program summer workshop, producing script readings, working with casting, and even doing a bit of acting. The relationships formed during this time became the foundation of Julia's work editing and consulting on a number of feature scripts.

In-between taking some time to write while working on an organic farm, Julia produced the indie documentary Echotone, about the intersection between Austin's growing music scene, housing boom, and poverty level. For several years she wrote feminist thought pieces for Sophia Rossi and Zooey Deschanel's website HG, including co-editing a series with the White House Office of Public Engagement focusing on women and community work.

Wanting to study photography, Julia moved to London, earning an MFA from Goldsmiths College in 2016. Since then, she has produced several short films and consulted on various short and feature scripts.
