    November 2020 | Julian Breece AB '03

    Writer of Netflix's When They See Us, ABC's upcoming Mason-Dixon & Searchlight's Alvin Ailey biopic

    By Carly Hillman AB '15

    “Oh, I should re-read that,” Julian Breece AB ’03 whispers to himself as he scans his bookshelf and reads me his favorite titles, as if he were reminding himself to call an old friend to catch up. I’d asked him about his favorite books from college, and the final addition to the list is not a book, but an admission: “I could go on forever.”

    His adoration is apt, because those books changed his life. Before he read them, he had a plan: he was going to be an academic. He would graduate from Harvard, get his masters, next his PhD, and then he’d become a professor. There were some questions of course (like whether he’d get a Rhodes Scholarship) but the general route was mapped. Then, he started the thesis writing process. “That was when I realized, ‘Oh, hell no. Academic writing is not for me,’” he remembers.

    With the help of a few creative writing classes he’d taken, he started to realize that he didn’t want to just write about the authors he admired—he wanted to do what they did. He switched to writing a creative thesis, and esteemed novelist and essayist Jamaica Kincaid signed on as his advisor.

    Breece followed the creative path out of Cambridge all the way to Hollywood. He’s now written for shows like The First, When They See Us, and First Wives Club. Currently, he’s writing a screenplay about Alvin Ailey, which Barry Jenkins is set to direct, and working on a TV show at ABC with Lee Daniels.

    Becoming a creative was more of a homecoming than a pivot. Breece grew up acting in his hometown of Washington, DC. He describes himself as a theater kid, which, upon deeper questioning, is a humble depiction. He was an actual working actor who performed at The Kennedy Center and appeared on shows like Teen Summit. Ultimately, he quit acting (“I embraced the fact that I was an introvert”) but continued to chase what had drawn him to acting in the first place. “Acting was a way of communicating,” he says, “and I always had something to say.”

    Start Date: 11/15/2020
    Type of Position: Full-Time
    Minimum Education Level: Bachelor's
    Minimum Years of Experience: Entry-level

    Job Description: BEST. EDITING. JOB. EVER.

    By day, Admissionado is an admissions consulting company founded by two Brown University grads (one ended up going to Harvard Business School, the other to USC Film School). By night, we save cats from trees and foil rebel plots. Fifty percent of these statements are 100% true.

    We are scouring the earth for wildly intelligent, self-motivated, fiercely talented editors. Not just any editor. The Michael Phelps of diagnosing logic weaknesses. The Serena Williams of delivering incisive, actionable feedback. The Muhummad Ali of... overall awesomeness. The job goes way beyond correcting grammar and fixing run-ons. Our process is one of story development: not just diagnosing weaknesses, but helping clients introspect and identify smart, creative, and intuitive pathways to communicate ideas more effectively.

    We love our work and take a lethal amount of pride in it. If you're an artist at heart, and you like fixing stuff, AND you've got mad skills with the red pen, welcome home.

    Expect to commit roughly 35 hours/week through January 2021. The work is remote, and always has been (since the company was founded, more than a decade ago). And compared to a position in a cubical farm, your schedule here is flexible (no fixed office hours): you can edit in a coffee shop, on your patio, on a plane, or in a coffee shop on a plane if that\'s how you roll.

    By the way, there’s potential for this role to develop into a year-round position. We\'re too damn popular, we keep growing, and new positions are created often

    Lean on Us: a Harvardwood Tribute to the Classes of 2020-2024

    This year, as the pandemic ground on and fractured life as we know it, many of us fondly remembered our college experience and felt terrible for the undergrads whose experience is being disrupted. But what could we do?

    We have many musicians in our Harvardwood community - some professional, some avocational. Cooped up at home and frustrated at not being able to play with others in person, we came up with the idea to put together a virtual band to record a message to let students know we are thinking about them.

    This was a labor of love, and both a logistical and technical challenge, from finding musicians to arranging the music, to ensuring that the tracks were in sync, to mixing and editing both audio and video. It was a fun process, and we hope you enjoy the result!
