Director Biography - Julia Hyatt

Julia Hyatt grew up in Acworth, GA, excelling in every school subject, yet having no idea which career path to choose. She'd go from wanting to be a surgeon to being an astronaut, to an FBI agent, and so on. It wasn't until her school added a film program in her junior year of high school that Julia thought about pursuing film. She realized through filmmaking, she could both experience any of these other careers as well as impact people with her films just like others' films have impacted her.

Julia is currently attending the Savannah College of Art & Design, where she plans to earn a BFA in film and television, with a minor in acting. She specializes in screenwriting, directing, and acting, and she loves making narrative films that both entertain the audience as well as provide new perspectives.

Director Statement

Dating in our modern world has become a pretty complicated process, especially with the creation of dating apps. Now that the dating pool has expanded greatly, people have more options, which also means they can be picky. If someone’s profile has one small thing you don’t resonate with, you can just swipe left, without ever speaking to the person. It’s easy for it to become a pretty objectifying process. This can make it feel harder to actually find a partner, not to mention the pressures placed on us from the older generations to get married and have children before we’re thirty.

Through the character of Taylor, we delve into themes of loneliness, desperation, and the search for connection in a world that can be isolating, especially for queer individuals like myself. We also explore the darker side of human nature, as Taylor becomes increasingly obsessed with finding her soulmate and is willing to cross ethical and moral boundaries to achieve her goal.

As a filmmaker, my goal was to create a nuanced portrayal of a character who is simultaneously sympathetic and unsettling. I aimed to capture the complexity of Taylor's emotions and the intensity of her desires, while also portraying the consequences of her actions in an impactful way.

I hope that audiences will be challenged and engaged by this film and that it will spark conversations about the lengths that we are willing to go to for love and connection. Ultimately, I believe that this film offers a powerful commentary on the human condition and the ways in which we navigate the often-complicated terrain of romantic relationships.
