JULIA GORBACH

Hey there! 

I'm an Emmy award-winning creator, innovator, and filmmaker. I conceive and create platform-agnostic work, which can be AI prototypes, interactive experiences, short films, digital products, social series, and more.  A hybrid by design, I'm driven by an insatiable curiosity for new experiences and ways of seeing the world - or what someone once called a "joyful wild mind."

Currently, I'm the Director of Originals at THAT, where my job is to creatively lead and incubate original work that clients aren’t ready to buy yet. It's like if Google Creative Lab, IDEO and Netflix had a baby, it'd be THAT Originals.  Previously, I was a member of the New Museum incubator called NEW INC and a Founding Member / Filmmaker at The Skin Deep, where I created, directed, and made interactive documentaries like {THE AND}.

Clients: Ford, Bloomberg, Grubhub, Seamless, No Kid Hungry, Census, Sotheby's, Walmart, Food Network, Condé Nast, Thinx, Public Policy Lab, The Oratory Laboratory
