Harriet Macdonald

Harriet Macdonald is a Director originally from Tasmania Australia. Her style has been honed by watching every VHS she could get her hands on and replaying them until she could work out how they had been made.

Strongly inspired by early photographers like Brassai and Robert Capa and the symbolism of old masters painters Harriet came to the UK in 2009 and started cutting her teeth in fashion videos, shooting edgy videos for iD, Zink and Fault with the likes of Sir Ian McKellen before moving more into music videos and branded content with clients including Nokia and Pantene.

No matter what the project she tries to find the heart and the soul of it- and move people with a smile or a thought. Harriet lives and works between London and Barcelona and her work has had 2 Vimeo staff picks and been shown at the Cannes Short film corner too.
