"The process of making the film, "The Power of Dance" was a new and surprisingly vulnerable experience. Since the first day, I was struck by Julianne Reynolds sensitivity in seeing a situation beyond the obvious and how she could convey a mood through her camera and editing work. So many times I heard her summarize my very personal intentions and vision to me, with perfect clarity and honesty… it was like looking in a mirror!

“I have been working with Julianne on a documentary film for over two years, and between her editorial abilities, and talents on how to construct a story line that is compelling and thoughtful, she stays present the whole time and open to what the story has to teach her. She is more then just a storyteller. She is creative, collaborative, and authentic in her approach to filmmaking."
