hi (at) juliazolkiewska.com
Thank you for dropping by my portfolio. I’m a Polish/Australian freelance creative based in Sydney, Australia although you can often find me working remotely from Europe where my roots are. These days I focus mostly on editing and animation, but I also pick up a camera to take photos and film. I love playing with mixed media and I’m currently honing my skills in hand drawn animation. Aerial (drone) and photo retouching are also skills I like to throw into the mix. I specialize in visual content which brings awareness and positive change to social and environmental issues.
I started my career as a Digital Video Producer at Pacific Magazines where we provided video content across the social and online platforms of the leading titles, including Australia’s best selling magazine Better Homes and Gardens and the nation’s leading fashion brand Marie Claire. During this time I have also mentored at Flashpoint Labs – a boutique photography and video agency training young Indigenous apprentices, whilst providing them with paid work experience. I loved teaching and mentoring young aspiring creatives whilst providing them with paid work. Giving them inspiration, especially as a female videographer in such a male dominated industry was very rewarding. I am passionate about challenging female stereotypes in the film industry and giving women equal opportunities in technical roles. Female creatives bring balance and a different point of view to every project.
More recently I have immersed myself into the world of Permaculture and Sustainability through completion of Permaculture Design Course and a Diploma of Sustainable Living at UTAS.
And whenever I feel like my feet are starting to itch and my eyes water from staring at the screen, I pack my bag and head out camping, rock climbing or escape overseas to explore other cultures, get inspired, bring back new shots, experiences or simply unwind and come back to nature. Whenever the opportunity arises to be part of a travel filming project, I don’t hesitate to get onboard and merge my two greatest passions – travel and capturing moments visually.
Whether it’s a job you need done or you’d like to brainstorm ideas for a personal project to collaborate on, I would love to hear from you.
