Julia Hubbell is a senior at Lake Brantley High School, third year staff member and Editor-In-Chief for The Brantley Banner. Additionally, she serves as a Field Commander for the Patriot Band, playing flute, piccolo, piano and arguably guitar. She enjoys writing in many ways, as a newspaper reporter, but also through composing her own musical arrangements. She is known for her strong opinions on, and deep appreciation for, any films made by Christopher Nolan, as well as songs composed by Hans Zimmer. She can often be found searching for movie soundtracks on vinyl, or telling her friends to go look at the moon. She finds that writing is an outlet like no other, and with this, she hopes that this year will be full of inspiration, and a way to grow in a craft that she already adores so much.

This tends to leave the audience with a subpar second installment, using the anticipation as a quick cash grab instead of trying to produce a high quality film.
