Julia Chow Bio
Julia was born on March 26, 1990, in California. Her sun sign is Aries. She is the youngest in a family of five. Julia’s artistic ability was one her parents discovered in her from a very young age. She had the ability to use her hand to create something that she envisioned. Interesting, huh? They helped her to hone her drawing abilities by enrolling her in classes where she began to explore the possibilities that lie in the art world. She made use of paints, pencils, crayons to push her thoughts out.
Prior to her being a part of Just Kidding Films, she used to watch their videos. Of course, their posts are too interesting for one to view them and not want more. The first video she watched was the Korean History Channel. However, she got her link to the family through one of the members, Tommy Trinh, although he left in March 2016 to pursue Formula Arts. Before they met, she had seen some of their skits and had this thought that if she ever bumps into the JKF family, she would ask if they want interns.
Then she met Tommy. After she introduced herself as a huge fan, Julia went ahead to ask if there is a space for interns in JKF because she would want to work with them. She worked as an intern and as she got integrated into the company, she eventually became one of the crews. The accomplishment she felt on finally getting to work in a company she loves and doing what she has so much passion for, is better imagined.
She has also worked in some other films including Why the Holidays Ruin Friendship (2017), Star Wars: DIY Cosplay (2015).
