Harley (dir. Tom Teller, 2013)

Our twenty-seventh film in Student Film Month is ‘Harley’ (dir. Tom Teller, 2013)

This mixture of live action and brilliant executed visual effects embraces the story of an odd looking fish and the perils of receiving no love from its owner. The use of CG in Harley, animated by the wonderful Tom Teller, has attracted wealths of attention that has brought this narrative to the forefront of student short films produced within the last year. With over 200 hours of hard work, Tom undertook this challenge as part of his Intermediate Production class at the Dodge College of Film and Media Arts.

Student Film Month
In celebration of student filmmakers everywhere and our Student Film In Transit competition, we’ve launched Student Film Month at Cannes in a Van. Every day throughout February, we’re publishing a student film from somewhere in the student film-sphere. It might be a student classic like the 1965 long-short Boy and Bicycle from a young Ridley Scott… an award-winning masterpiece… or a film directed by you.

We’ll be publishing a wealth of moving images from the infamous to the obscure, each film worthy of it’s place on our humble little stage. So what’s stopping you picking up that mouse, tablet or phone and sending us your own student short? You never know where the big yellow van might take you!

We’re even hosting a special Student Film Screen Social very soon in London so look out for more on that by joining our mailing list.

It’s simple to submit…
Email us at and tell us what you’d like to show, then fill in the Screen Social submission form (please include details of production) and we’ll do the rest!

We look forward to screening your film.
