Julia Parnell

Producer, Director

Producer and director Julia Parnell’s CV boasts a diverse range of credits — from comedy (Wayne Anderson: Singer of Songs) to sport (Wilbur: The King in the Ring), music (feature documentaries on The Chills and Six 60) and te ao Māori (Restoring Hope). Parnell’s production company Notable Pictures is behind a run of award-winning short films (Dive, Friday Tigers), plus long-running mini-documentary series Loading Docs.

It's a great privilege for me to tell stores that contribute to our understanding of who we are, where we've been and what we might become. I aspire to create strong stories, work that entertains and takes viewers into new worlds. Julia Parnell
