01. Love to do

Great storytelling with the highest production values.

Working across genres on the screen medium that best suits each individual project, Lacada was founded in January 2016 by Julie Gardner, a Northern Ireland producer with 20 years’ experience spanning movies, TV and animation.

Short Films

We love short films!  We have three films currently touring international film festivals to great success.  We’re excited to add the filming of two more to our roster in Spring 2019.

Development

We are actively developing a varied slate of high-end genre feature film scripts for 2019-20 across a range of optioned and original IP.

We’re excited to get our doco series Parental Advisory underway later this year.

Television

We’re looking forward to the transmission of Counsel, our 1h drama for BBC One, in Spring 2019.  Our RTE Storyland project A Sign of Things completed its run on RTE Player, where it secured the no. 1 viewing slot.

Mentoring

A seasoned industry professional, in 2017 Julie Gardner was appointed Northern Ireland’s regional career mentor to Screen Skills‘ film trainees.

Teaching

Producer Julie Gardner devises and delivers expert-led training courses on behalf of clients such as NI Screen.   “Better than the 3 years I spent at film school”. 

She lectures part time in Interactive Media at NRC.

Co-production

Based in the UK, on the island of Ireland, with our fantastic Northern Ireland locations and talent, we’re ideally placed to partner on international co-pros.
