Julie Herlocker learned the art of crafting a story during her successful career as a Post Producer on high-profile one-hour dramas. Working closely with some of the top show-runners in the industry, she learned what to do – and more importantly what not to do – as a director. Her award-winning first short, “Peter’s Ashes” set her directing career in motion.
Prior to her work in post, Julie worked her way up in indie films, starting as a set PA, then grip/electric, 2nd AD, and line producer. As an assistant to producers on studio projects, she was advised to use post production as a smart way to learn directing from that side of the craft.
Having directed ADR for more than 300 episodes of television, Julie loves working with actors. She also knows VFX, delivering her creature heavy episode of NBC’s GRIMM “Breakfast in Bed” on schedule and on budget, receiving kudos for performances of both guest cast and series regulars.
Julie shows her style with her 2nd short, "7AM Wednesday." Drawn to character pieces with an edge, currently she's developing a high-tension dramedy feature, a horror short and is attached to direct the pilot for the series "Solanna", the story of a young woman’s race against time to save her beloved horse from slaughter.
Julie was selected as an emerging director for the DGA's 2019-2020 DDI Mentorship Program.
