My name is Joe Harvey and I was fortunate enough to benefit from the work of The Tuskar Trust in 2009, when I spent two valuable weeks working on Big Brother between finishing my time at Colchester Sixth Form and beginning university life. The time spent at Elstree reaffirmed my passion for the media and gave me a much needed confidence boost ahead of my three years at University of Southampton, where I studied Film Studies and English.
Fast forward seven years and I am working as an Editor and Screenwriter. My debut feature-length screenplay, Sweetboy, began production a few months after I completed my degree, and despite it being a zero-budget project, we created a film that went on to receive its international premiere in New York at the HBO sponsored American Black Film Festival. It later went on to receive its UK TV premiere on London Live.
