Julia Garcia Wants to Resonate with Her Audience

Julia Garcia strives to be a well-rounded entertainer. Working both in front of the camera as well as behind the camera, she tells stories that are both meaningful and important. A born performer, Julia’s passion is evident in both her acting and her dancing. She recently took time away from current projects for this interview about her career.

Tell us about your current projects.

I’m currently Executive Producing my first project that begins filming in January. I’m really excited about this film because it’s unlike anything I’ve ever done before. ‘Alone’ tells the story of a mythological creature from South America that possesses individuals within a family. 

Why do you think it is important as an actor to work both in front and behind the camera?

I personally want to be well rounded. It’s been great growing up in front of the camera, but my goal is to bring my own projects to life while understanding all aspects of the business. Producing allows me to understand the process and the logistics of making movies, learning cinematography helps me bring my vision to life in front of the camera with each scene and ultimately directing will allow me to convey my stories. My goal with each of my projects is for my stories to resonate with the audience.

If you could work with anyone in the industry, who would it be and why?

I’m a huge fan of Sofia Coppola. I think the way she makes her movies is truly special. She started her career in front of the camera and then transitioned to producing, writing, and directing. Sofia is the first American woman to be nominated for Best Director and the third woman ever to be nominated in that same category. I think she’s paving the way for women like me.

Of all the accolades you have, which one has meant the most to you and why?

My first producing credit was for a short film called ‘Abuelo.” I was 15 years old at the time and when it became Oscar qualified, I was just beside myself. I was so happy for my family at Love Project Films. I was so thankful to have been able to support them in that film.

What is your favorite form of dance?

I’m a classically trained ballerina. Ballet is my foundation; it comes first before any other styles. Ballet gives me discipline and technique but above all brings me joy. Ballet is my core, it’s my heart.

What do you like to do in your downtime?

I’m very intentional with my time, my downtime consists of spending time with my friends and family. I’m definitely a quality time person. I need to be with my people and laugh. Creating memories and being with my loved ones is what it’s all about.
