Julianna Robinson
Los Angeles, CA

Julianna Robinson was born in Reno, Nevada to working class parents who divorced when she was very young. Raised by her single mom who worked multiple jobs to make ends meet, Julianna was determined to be the first person in her family to attend college. She was accepted to UCSB and had intended to be a pre-med student but changed majors at the end of her freshman year when she was accepted to the coveted BFA acting program. In her first year at school, a casting director saw her in a play and cast her in an ill-fated Star Trek spinoff which allowed her to blow her entire salary on studying Shakespeare in London for a summer semester. Upon graduation, she moved to Los Angeles, acting in many stage productions and playing the lead in several independent feature films. It was through this film work that she discovered a fascination for the entire filmmaking process. In 2019, she wrote and directed her first short film, “The Party”, which premiered at LA’s Screamfest. She has directed 8 short films now and has two feature film scripts in development (one of which she hopes to direct this year). She is a member of both SAG-AFTRA and AWD and has been actively applying to director shadowing programs.
