SAE Welcomes New Film Lecturer Dr Julia Reynolds

SAE Auckland is pleased to welcome Dr Julia Reynolds to the role of Film Lecturer at SAE. Julia commences teaching into the film programmes at SAE this January.

Julia is an outstanding filmmaker with twelve years’ experience as a director, editor, art director and more recently scriptwriter for virtual reality. She’s worked in television, music videos, TV commercials, funded short films, animations, international web content, as well as interactive and virtual reality.

As well as having a wealth of industry experience, Julia is an experienced academic. Her career has including time working the University of Waikato teaching their studio and video production courses, and prior to joining SAE she was at WINTEC Media Arts School in the Moving Image department.
Julia holds a PhD in Film from AUT. Her research includes both written and creative work – she is currently developing her PhD thesis into a published book. Her first feature film, science-fiction epic, Shepherd, is due to premier in early 2018.

Shepard tells the story of Eden, a sixteen-year-old girl struggling to survive in a dystopian future. When Eden comes across an old tourist map she has been dreaming about she is faced with leaving the only life she knows to follow the map.

Julia says of her creative practice, ‘My work and research explores community, DIY film-making, process, empowerment and the environment – all served with a healthy spoon of philosophy.’

SAE Auckland Campus Director, Dr Suzette Major says: ‘We are fortunate to have secured such a seasoned filmmaker and tertiary teacher. Julia’s passion and enthusiasm for all things creative, coupled with her knowledge and experience as a teacher, will be a great addition to the team.’
