According to Motionographer, "Belly is a touching animated short rendered in Julia's disarming illustration style." The film—which is a coming of age tale that takes place underwater in a fantastical world and whose subject matter deals with the necessary evil of leaving something behind—was screened at Sundance and SXSW, and has collected numerous awards from festivals such as the San Francisco International Film Festival, Chicago Film Festival, and Clermont Ferrand International Film Festival, to name only a few.
