About ME

From an early age, Harrison has always had a love of storytelling and cinema. Growing up on the set of films such as 'Lord of the Rings', 'Superman Returns' and 'Australia', he was quite literally raised on set.

At 15, Harrison's first short film 'Silent Night' was screening at multiple festivals across Australia, including, Flickerfest, The ATOM Awards, and GCFF; winning 11 of its 13 total nominations. And winning him a part-scholarship to Bond University to study film.

Deferring this Bond filmmaking scholarship, Harrison relocated to Namibia, South Africa, where he spent 8 months working in the Namib desert as a stunt performer on the upcoming Mad Max 4: Fury Road.

Returning from Mad Max, Harrison enrolled at Bond University and was selected to direct the 18th Annual BUFTA broadcast; a contest he had himself been a successful participant of. Featuring exclusive interviews with multiple academy award winners, BUFTA went on to amass a total of over 10,000 viewers through its 3 hour+ run-time.

Following BUFTA and as part of his studies, Harrison worked in the industry interning on Black Sails: Season 2 in Cape Town, South Africa; a show which went on to become the second highest budgeted TV show in history, and most downloaded show on Amazon UK to date.

After his graduation, Harrison began touring with his 2nd short film 'A Peaceful Man'. Visiting multiple international festivals in Europe and the US.

Harrison is now 19 and temporarily based in Toronto, working on David Ayer's 'Suicide Squad' (starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto).
