My name is Julia Gilmer, and I am from Chandler, Arizona. I am a film and television major at Arizona State University with a focus in pre-production. I want to work in development, story, and project management. I have a passion for design, storytelling, character creation, world-building, and communications. My dream is to make films like those that inspired me when I was a little girl. I have experience developing for animation, short films, music videos, and other creative works.
