Friday Field Trip: Juliet Zulu

Posted on Apr 3rd, 2017 by Kate Bingaman-Burt

Come join us on a tour of Juliet Zulu on April 7th.

From humble beginnings, Juliet Zulu has been the dedication, passion and talent of a group of artists and their unwavering drive to deepen a pursuit of filmmaking by collaborating with excellent clients. A team whose greatest strength is solidarity, shorthand and a seven year camaraderie in an otherwise freelance based industry.

What started as a production company grew into a creative agency that fell headfirst into becoming a global agency of record. The instincts and talents of this team found success in yearly brand strategy, seasonal creative direction and large content roll-outs across digital and traditional mediums.

But today, we return to our roots and our first calling to pursue filmmaking with complete focus. To build on each individual’s skills and experience. To make wonderful, compelling and impactful stories in film. To work with new and exciting clients and put our best foot forward, which in our case is when we all step forward together.
