"Chris has gone above and beyond the call of duty to be more than helpful to me for a wide variety of projects. His writing is beautiful, eloquent, and simply superb. Having him on board elevates the quality of any proposal like magic!"
- Maria Ibrahimova (Miss Gulag)
In writing about Julie Gillis it is not that I don’t know where to begin, it is that I don’t know what to leave out: writer, actress, instigator, agent provocateur, entertainer, fundraiser, social media master, outraged and engaged citizen, promoter, innovator, social activist, cultural catalyst and that’s just the prelude. She’s a creative force guided by a master theatrical and media sensibility.
- Louis Black (Founder, Austin Chronicle and SXSW)
Julie was instrumental in helping me raise 150% of my Kickstarter goal and keeping me sane in the process. Julie is strategic, professional, reliable, AND a champion of any project she takes on.
- Shelby Hadden (Tightly Wound)
Working with Chris is stunning and a life saver. Before you are even sure of your story of your film he is able to script the narrative you hope your project will become. He is familiar with most granting opportunities and helps navigate you through the maze, His experience with crowd funding and producing truly raises the bar.
- Amy Goldstein (The Hooping Life)
Julie's worked onstage and off with her consulting and is committed to supporting progressive actions/causes all while helping the activists and groups she works with tell their story. She brings it, totally, to the cause and to working with her clients.
- Lizz Winstead (Co-creator, The Daily Show)
Chris was an invaluable help with writing polished, articulate grant proposals that captured the essence of a complicated, nuanced project. Where every word counted, his choices always maximized the story and emotions we were trying to communicate. Moreover, he was writing for a film midway through production about a topic hardly covered before. Where one word could tip the scale, his writing was able to strike a sensitive balance between empathy and objectivity. Writing talents aside, Chris is a pleasure to simply be around especially if you're lucky enough to catch him soon after a trip to Portugal with a bottle of port in hand!
