WHO RUN THE WORLD?: PRODUCER & ART DIRECTOR MEAGAN JUDKINS DOES

Creative producer Meagan Judkins does– You can find her handling everything from location scouts and casting to budget calculating, styling and photo editing. Meagan’s signature appears on cult-favorite brands like Minimale Animale, epic editorials with Luke Gilford for Prada and most recently narrative film. This one-woman show is a by-any-means-necessary production.

You’ve heard the old adage that good art is the ability to take two seemingly unrelated concepts and show how they intersect. If this cliche is accurate, then it’s the best explanation for the notable talent of Renaissance woman Meagan Judkins.

A product of a schizophrenic upbringing, Meagan oscillated between cultural extremes: A conservative Mormon mother from Berkeley, an agnostic father from Seattle, and a Jewish Brazilian stepmother whose career in art and interest in fashion served as a template for a young girl living a stone’s throw from the beehive itself, Brigham Young University. A sort of “army brat,” her father’s work took her from Utah to D.C., from Brazil to Argentina, Paraguay, and finally to L.A., where she took root on her own before the age of 18.

A disjointed upbringing can set a fire under a person, instilling in them a sort of permanent traveler status—an ability to feel at home in the strange, and see the strangeness of home. This unique point of view is the ethos of Meagan’s work.
