Director Biography - Reed H. Sharp

Reed H. Sharp is a young film maker who will graduate from Huntington Beach High School in June of 2021. He grew up creating movies since he was 5 years old. He was inspired to enter his first film contest in Kindergarten for the PTA Reflections Program. He has loved movies and this passion was heavily influenced by his grandmother Murial “Mimi” Sharp who took him to Universal Studios whenever she had the chance. He developed his drawing and painting skills by through the instruction of his Grandma Ginny Rozen and Papa Roy Sharp and his love of cameras has been highly sparked by his Grandpa Gordon Rozen. His other influences have been his amazing teachers who encouraged him to use his filmmaking and/or animation talent for various school projects instead using the traditional PowerPoint presentation style.

Reed is currently a student of the Huntington Beach Academy for the Performing Arts (hbapa.org) which has over 700 students hailing from 7 different high schools in the HBUHSD. He was blessed to earn 1 of the highly popular and award-winning spots in the MMET-Media Department of HBAPA or “APA” for short. His goal in high school was to “Go Pro”. In the last four years with the help and guidance of his teachers Michael Simmons, David Gutel, Jamie Knight, and Danielle Collins, Reed has literally been able to accomplish his goal and has “gone pro” by earning a job as a production assistant for the Reel Big Production Company. He first volunteered as many hours as possible while going to school and maintaining a high GPA along with serving as a very active team member of the MMET Program plus anchoring the news show, “Campus Update” for HBHS. He is working his way up to be an assistant director by shadowing David Gutel on various projects. While Reed has gotten his feet wet in the film industry, he looks forward to furthering his education at a local university as a film major. While on the film sets Reed has met many interesting, talented people in the film industry and his new friends recently volunteered their time to help him on the film that he wrote and directed titled, “Conjugal Revivification”.

Along with filmmaking, Reed has been acting and performing since he was 6 years old. Most of his experience is in musical theatre, but his recent performances have involved being a news anchor (2018-presaent) for HBHS Campus Update, the Emcee to describe Audience Etiquette of HBAPA’s Academy Awards, the dramatic production of “Alice in Wonderland”, and also HBAPA’s Emcee to describe Drive-In Etiquette for their Annual MMET Beatles Fundraiser Concert. While at HBAPA, he trained with a vocal coach and found himself on stage as a vocalist as part of their MMET-Pop Music Program.

My production crew and I were in the middle of trying to complete “The Indescribable Clause of the Crook and Crooked” Project when Covid hit so my brother and I turned to each other and became a 2-person crew to produce this short film about a film maker in the wild west. It gave us a chance to experiment with real film and to develop the photos from Grandpa’s vintage camera from 1910. The photos actually came out!
