Harry Lock is from Ashby de-la-Zouch and originally wanted to be a pilot, but then he found his dad’s camcorder and life took a different direction. He joined the BA Hons Filmmaking course at the Northern Film School in 2015 and quickly developed a self-motivated approach to getting things done. He started work experience at True Vision Yorkshire in his second year and in his third year made his graduation film, Digging Dawn, with fellow student, Ollie Allen. Harry and Ollie collaborated on all the film roles involved in making this funny and fascinating film about a female metal detector.

Directly after graduating in July 2018, Harry returned to True Vision on a 6 month paid scholarship in which time he filmed and edited his first film for The Guardian, Fighting Shame. Fighting Shame is about “a group of ordinary women from Leeds fighting poverty and shame”. Harry is now permanently employed as a Production Assistant at True Vision.

True Vision were so impressed by Harry that they nominated him for the coveted RTS Yorkshire industry award 'One To Watch' which he won last Friday at the glamorous awards show held in the Queen’s, Hotel Leeds. Quite a success story - congratulations Harry!
