Team Juul

Juul Haalmeyer: THE MOVIE

Juul Haalmeyer: THE MOVIE  is a character-driven portrait documentary about Toronto's Emmy award-winning costume designer, Juul Haalmeyer.   Though popularly recognized for his minor recurring role on SCTV as the leader of the 'Juul Haalmeyer Dancers', within the industry Juul is regarded as a distinctive and accomplished costume designer who has worked in film and television for over 40 years. 

Mapping crossroads both personal and professional, Juul Haalmeyer: THE MOVIE will offer viewers a candid glimpse into Juul's day-to-day life while simultaneously providing a retrospective look at the glitzy, star-infused and exhausting professional history of a Canadian costumier.   

Having cut his teeth on the variety show circuit throughout the 1970s on several American co-productions, Juul has dressed some of the biggest names in show business during that era.  From Jack Lemmon to Phyllis Diller to Ike & Tina Turner - Juul has dressed them all

… and does he have stories ...

We began filming Juul and his Fashion District studio in June of 2013.  To-date we've accumulated over thirty hours of beautifully shot master interview footage with Juul.  We have also documented the many iconic costumes housed within that space.   At this stage, we require funding in order to map changes in Juul's life throughout the upcoming calendar year and to complete numerous interviews with Juul's family, friends and colleagues. 

Juul's story is important.  While his professional history is wildly entertaining - aspects of his personal story are truly significant and inspiring.

Donating to this campaign will help us to make the best film possible.  All funding received will go toward our production budget and will be used to cover basic equipment rental fees and upgrades. In exchange, we're offering a bevy of very glamorous perks for our donors to choose from, largely selected by Juul himself!

Perks include (but are not limited to):

  • A Facebook shout-out from Juul
  • Formal induction into the Juul Haalmeyer dancers
  • A custom styled Juul Haalmeyer Dancers outfit
  • Juul's own personal hairbrush (yup, really)!
  • A dinner date with Juul Haalmeyer (with the Director accompanying as chaperone)

Did you know that Juul did the wardrobe on ABC's 1975 Alice Cooper Welcome To My Nightmare Variety Special with Vincent Price?  Word has it that between takes Price enjoyed discussing art with Juul's mom Trudy.

It's true!  It's a JUUL FACT.


Did you know that from 1989 - 1992 Juul Haalmeyer was the Costume Designer on the CBC sketch comedy show CODCO? 

It's true! It's a JUUL FACT!


Did you know that as a teenager in Eugene Oregon, Juul fronted his own musical group 'Jule and the Gems'?  They were pretty hot on the local wedding circuit.  That's Juul on the top right.

It's true!  It's a JUUL FACT


Did you know that Juul designed for Phyllis Diller on both the The Julie Show (1976-1978) and The Bobby Vinton Show (1976)? Afterward, Juul gifted those costumes to Phyllis and she wore them often throughout her Vegas show run.

It's true!



Did you know that as a Costume Designer, Juul has been nominated for an Emmy on two separate occasions? 

It's true!



Did you know that on August 16th, 1966 Juul Haalmeyer beat out local baton twirler Peggy Walker, taking home First Prize at the Siskiyou County Fair Talent Show?

Juul states that the Talent Show was a "diversion between the pig and pie contests". He sang "Somewhere" from West Side Story and won $50. He also earned a giant trophy but he gifted it to his accompanist, Kathy Whittaker, because "it was so tacky" and he didn't want it in his house.

It's true!



Did you know that as a young child in the Netherlands Juul moonlighted as a photographer's model?  It's true!  It's a JUUL FACT!


Did you know that in November of 1966 Juul Haalmeyer donned a white dinner jacket and ONCE AGAIN beat out local rival baton twirlers and other competitors to take home First Prize at the Springfield Oregon Stars Of The Future Talent Show? Juul sang "The Impossible Dream" from Man of La Mancha? 

It's true! It's a JUUL FACT!


Fabulous Toronto artist Ian Phllips is whipping up ten limited edition giclee prints of Juul's glorious mug, signed on the back by the artist and autographed and personalized by Juul himself on the front.

The next ten donations over $100 will automatically receive a print (in addition to whatever other perks the donor may choose).
