He was recently selected for BFI Network x BAFTA Crew 2021. Harry began working life in the non-fiction world, directing his debut feature length documentary ‘BREAKTHROUGH’ - a film shot across three continents looking at the obstacles to living a creative life and how to overcome them. Since then he's written and directed numerous commercial and narrative projects working with Channel 4, Sky1 and Vertical Networks.
