In 2016, Tom Har­di­man came to pro­mi­nence with a series of shorts inclu­ding an acclai­med film for Dazed cal­led ‘Radi­cal Hard­core’. The film was sel­ec­ted by Lyn­ne Ramsay for her ‘Elec­tric Shorts’ series, making it into the Lon­don Short Film Fes­ti­val and The BFI’s Net­work Picks. Sin­ce then, Tom has work­ed on mul­ti­ple short film pro­jects inclu­ding music vide­os for Mura Masa, Tun­ey­ards, Joy­wa­ve and Ever­y­thing is Recor­ded, as well as the short film ‘Slen­der Bodies’ com­mis­sio­ned by M2M and ‘Bar Luce’ a col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with Pra­da and Vogue. With the sup­port of the BFI, Tom is fol­lo­wing this up with his second short, a come­dic-dra­ma which mixes live action with ani­ma­ti­on, entit­led Pitch Black Panacea. The film will pre­mie­re at Cler­mont-Fer­rand in 2020. His first fea­ture is curr­ent­ly in deve­lo­p­ment, and is set to shoot next year.
