Julie Kirkham has worked in the industry for over 30 years. She began as a script reader and climbed the “studio ranks” to become the Vice President of Production at Orion Pictures, and then the Senior Vice President at Lawrence Bender Productions. Kirkham served as producer on Black Rain, Anna and the King, Around the Bend, and many more.

“I have always enjoyed working with young writers,” she says. “Finding new talent thrills me,” as she recalls giving writers such as Steve Zaillian, Ron Shelton, Craig Bolotin, Jordan Roberts and Blake Herron their first deals.
