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 have three films currently touring international film festivals to great success and we’re excited for the production of a handful more brilliant shorts this year.

Feature Film

We are actively developing a varied slate of high-end genre feature film scripts for 2018-19 across a range of optioned and original IP.

Television

We’ve just wrapped Counsel, a 1h drama for the BBC. Our RTE Storyland project A Sign of Things has just completed its run on RTE Player, where it secured the no. 1 viewing slot.

Teaching

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”.

Mentoring

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

Co-production

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