Profiling Up and Coming Writer-Director - Julian Breece

I worked with Julian on one of my scripts a couple of years ago when he had just finished graduate school and was in the producer's program. I'm happy to see that Julian is well on the road to success. Way to GOOOOOO, Julian. Perhaps we can work on another project again one day in the near future.



Writer-Director JULIAN BREECE is a graduate of Harvard University (AB '03) and USC's Graduate School or Cinema-Television (MFA '05). His debut short, THE YOUNG & EVIL, received grants from Panavision, The Reginald F. Lewis Foundation and the Frameline Completion Fund. The short has screened at major festivals around the world and is an Official Selection of the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

Breece's first feature screenplay BALL won a Slamdance Feature Screenplay Award and went on to become a 2007 Finalist for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting. Currently, Breece is the creator, executive producer and director of BUPPIES, the first web drama to present an African-American cast. Featured as one of IndieWIRE's "Ten Exciting New Voices in Black Cinema," Breece will direct his first feature film, HEARTLAND, in Fall 2009.
