Harrison’s first two features, Groove and November, both premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and sold to Sony Pictures Classics for theatrical and DVD distribution. Groove, a comedy chronicling one night in the San Francisco rave scene, garnered an Independent Spirit Award nomination. November, an experimental drama shot on digital video in 15 days starring Courteney Cox, won the cinematography award at Sundance and Harrison was named one of 10 Directors To Watch by Variety.
Harrison has also collaborated with acclaimed Italian artist Francesco Vezzoli, first on a fake trailer for an absurdist Hollywood remake of Caligula, featuring Helen Mirren, Milla Jovovich and Courtney Love, among others. It premiered at the Venice Biennale in 2005, played the 2006 Whitney Biennial, and is pail 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 be shown at museums and galleries internationally.
