Thom Harp

Screenwriter | Director | Wonderful Human Being


In college, Thom was a pretentious, arty prat which didn’t change once he graduated, when he wrote a lesbian-noir-melodrama called JELLYFISH KISS which, while it made the Quarter Finals of the Nicholl Fellowship, was a self-important, indulgent mess. After the birth of his son, and the ensuing endless diaper changing, Thom realized that comedy was his forte and he used his experiences for another Nicholl Quarter Finalist unfortunately titled KNOCKED UP.

He has several scripts in development, all some kind of comedy-slash-something else blend of genres focusing on people making really dumb decisions and getting in lots of trouble. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. They’re better than CATS.

After graduating with degrees in theater and film from Occidental College, Thom 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.

Thom has made many award-winning shorts, including 8 MINUTES TO LOVE (starring Sandra Oh), FORTUNE HUNTERS (starring Kelvin Yu & Gedde Watanabe), PROFILES IN EXCELLENCE (starring Randall Park), EXIT SURVEY, MULVA LENDS A HAND and most recently HOW TO APPLY FOR A SEXUAL POSITION (starring Justine Bateman & Alison Becker) and KILLER CHARM.
