Greg Harrison is a writer/director. His first two features, Groove and November, both premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and were distributed by Sony Pictures Classics.
Groove received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for best feature. November, starring Courteney Cox, won Sundance's cinematography award, and Greg was named one of 10 Directors To Watch by Variety.
Greg's current feature projects include The Radioactive Boy Scout, a true story of a 16-year-old in Michigan who attempts to build a nuclear reactor in his backyard, and All We Ever Wanted Was Everything, a dark comedy based on the nationally best-selling novel about a dysfunctional Silicon Valley family in freefall during the current economic meltdown.
Harrison also recently directed the music video for Loli, the new single from French-pop band Nous Non Plus. It had its exclusive premiere on Pitchfork TV, was Video of the Day on AOL’s Spinner, was in rotation on MTV’s Subterranean, and was a featured video on YouTube, garnering nearly a half-million hits in two weeks.
Greg has also collaborated with Italian video artist Francesco Vezzoli, first on a fake movie trailer for would-be Hollywood remake of Caligula, featuring Helen Mirren, Milla Jovovich and Courtney Love, among others. It premiered at the Venice Biennale in 2005 and is part of the Guggenheim’s permanent collection.
The second was a satirical documentary Harrison wrote and directed about the life and death of Vezzoli in the art world, done in the style of an E! True Hollywood Story. It premiered at London’s Tate Modern in 2006 and continues to show at museums and galleries internationally.
