Julie Howe

executive producer/writer/co-creator of The Adventures of Catty Wompus; AFF Comedy Screenplay Winner

After her comedy screenplay, Jasper Milliken, won at AFF in 2010 many doors opened and she got a development deal. Then, some of those doors closed so she crawled through an open window and created her own collaborative production company called Crooked Sidewalk. 

Crooked Sidewalk’s first production, The Adventures of Catty Wompus, wrapped on July 31st, 2015 thanks to some incredibly hard-working co-creators and a boatload of enthusiasm.  Produced and directed by biz partner Craig Comstock, the project is based around Jules’ children’s book characters and a group of real-life musicians disguised as sea critters, TAOCW is a children’s musical spec pilot designed to be either a web series or, God willing and the creek don’t rise and all the stars in the sky align, a network gig.  Many candles are being lit and tiny plastic saints stashed about for good luck.
