Harry Dehal


Film. 54 minutes. 2008.

At the age of seventeen, I directed an independent feature-length film called Oceania. With the help of friends and family, we filmed in the San Francisco Bay Area on a budget of $4,000. I learned about cinematography and editing over many long nights and weekends. We used a volunteer cast and crew and donated equipment. The film finally hit the big screen at the 2008 Cinequest Film Festival, closing with a sold-out audience and now over 30,000+ downloads.
