Starting out in Hollywood in 2002, Giulia worked with such heavy hitting producers as Oscar winners Akiva Goldsman, George Clooney, and Gianni Nunnari. After doing her agency experience in the agent training program at Paradigm Talent Agency, Giulia then went on to Hollywood Gang Productions in a producing capacity, serving as creative executive. She worked on the development of the English language remake of Giuseppe’s Tornatore’s film EVERYBODY IS FINE starring Robert De Niro, and 300. Giulia worked with Rosalie Swedlin at Industry Entertainment, through Rosalie representing for such clients as Pulitzer prize winner Lawrence Wright, Oscar winner Callie Khouri, and other acclaimed clients. Swiftly following his resounding box office success with 300, Nunnari requested Giulia take on the role of his Vice President of Creative Affairs at Hollywood Gang Productions which she accepted in 2007. She shepherded projects such as the original screenplay THE IMMORTALS for Relativity, and the sequel to 300 with Frank Miller.

Giulia formed Mind the GAP Productions in November 2008 to produce her own slate of independent projects. Through Mind the GAP she has produced GREYSTONE PARK, written and directed by Sean Stone and featuring Oliver Stone, and THE EVIL GENE starring Richard Speight Jr. and Cameron Richardson, and HOW TO SURVIVE AN OFFICE UPRISING written by Ian Shorr and Peter Gamble Robinson, directed by Lin Oeding and starring Brenton Thwaites, Jane Levy, Karan Soni, and Zachary Levi.

Her career path has also led to International Sales, as a natural progression in financing and distributing independent friendly titles. After working at film markets around the world, she became Head of Sales for Bleiberg Entertainment, also acting as production executive for several titles including the Dolph Lundgren film BATTLE OF THE DAMNED, and David Morse, Corey Monteith film MCCANICK. Giulia moved on to become Vice President of International Sales at Epic Pictures and DDI. At DDI Giulia was able to return to family friendly fare with animation films such as ELLIOTT: THE LITTLEST REINDEER, and the family title A.R.C.H.I.E.: ROBODOG. She went on to launch the USA branch of Australian Finance, Production and Sales company Cowlick Entertainment as managing director, working on packaging TRUE SPIRIT, the true story of 16 year old Jessica Watson who sailed solo around the world, before diving in at Cinema Management Group consulting on Sales and Acquisitions: developing, producing, and selling an enviable slate of commercial, theatrical films including POOR BOY, Guy Pearce’s directorial debut, an animation slate, and remaining territories on the globally successful and Golden Globe and Oscar nominated LOVING VINCENT. Giulia is currently consulting for both sales and production under Mind the GAP Productions.
