Julie Saltman - Costume Designer

You think Shakespeare thought “All the world’s a stage”? Beantown girl Julie Saltman grew up eating, sleeping, and breathing theatre. It all began at Boston Children’s Theatre at age 6, then continued at Walnut Hill School for the Performing Arts, where she found her true stage world—backstage.

Armed with an undergraduate degree from Carnegie Mellon University and a master’s degree in costume design at Brandeis University, her credits include various positions on Broadway’s Lestat, High Fidelity, Altar Boyz, Spring Awakening, 110 in the Shade, and several others. She also worked on Twelfth Night for Shakespeare in the Park.

On the set of Disney’s wildly popular Enchanted, Julie built costumes for Susan Sarandon. And for Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe, she created the “big blue meanie” masks. Other film work includes Reason, Delivery Man (starring Vince Vaughn), Miracle of Spanish Harlem, and Smart Shorties.

Julie’s theatre producing experience includes Rat Pack Undead, Afterglow, and Deathly Ones, as well as assisting David Garfinkle on Spiderman: Turn off the Dark.

Offstage, volunteering has been an enormous part of Julie’s life also. Whether it’s cooking Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless, making scarves for children with leukemia, teaching art to at-risk children, or helping professional women get back on their feet after losing virtually everything in Hurricane Sandy, most near and dear to her heart is the work she does for FM World Charities, which throws concerts to raise money for various worthy causes.

On the small screen, she’s had the great fortune to work on groundbreaking shows such as Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and Zoom! and has also served as personal assistant to a few celebrities. Small Miracles marks the tenth TV pilot she’s been involved with over the last several years, and she looks forward to helping create many more “small miracles.”

"SMALL MIRACLES" Costume Designer Julie Saltman talks about her process of designing wardrobe for the characters of Mort (Judd Hirsch) and Esty (Kathryn Kates) and the difficult task of being authentic to each time period.Some of Julie's challenges were to dress Principal Actors and Background Actors for Nazi-occupied Poland in 1939, 1970's America, India, and Jerusalem, and the American Civil War of 1862.

In order to execute these tasks with a limited budget and a short staff, Julie needed to be creative in utilizing her resources. She pulled some of her wardrobe from the stage plays "Jesus Christ Superstar" and "Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat" and also utilized real Civil War reenactors for Episode 1 to stay true to the authenticity of Union and Confederate soldiers.
