Director Thom Harp
Director: After graduating with degrees in theater and film, Thom Harp began his career as a cinematographer. Go figure. He shot features and shorts for directors like Julia Sweeney and Lynn Shelton and his music videos and documentary footage of the explosive Seattle music scene are on permanent display at the Experience Music Project in Seattle.
Since turning his attention back to writing and directing, he’s made four award-winning shorts, including 8 MINUTES TO LOVE, starring Emmy-winner Sandra Oh, and FORTUNE HUNTERS (both on iTunes) which have played in over 75 festivals worldwide, and have been featured on IFC, HBO and Canal+. He also wrote and directed PROFILES IN EXCELLENCE, a mockumentary pilot for Rainn Wilson’s SoulPancake starring Randall Park (THE INTERVIEW, ABC’s “Fresh off the Boat”).
His script DRUNK DIAL is set up at Stage 6/Sony and he is currently prepping to direct his first feature HOME DELIVERY, produced by Voltage Pictures.
