Julian Higgins is a writer, director, and proud Emerson alum. His graduate thesis film from the American Film Institute, Thief, won the 2011 Student Academy Award (Narrative Gold Medal), two Student Emmy Awards, and two dozen other prizes from more than fifty festivals around the globe. On the strength of the film, Julian was brought into the fold of the long-running drama series House, where he made his television directing debut – at the age of 26 – with one of the final episodes of the series. His most recent short, Here and Now, was selected by Ron Howard as the winner of Canon's "Project Imaginat10n" Film Contest. In addition to pursuing further television directing work, Julian is currently developing several feature film projects. He is represented by ICM Partners and is a proud member of the Directors Guild of America.
