Working both in social satire and comedy / drama, Guillaume Harvey likes to look at things from a distance, adding humor to subject matters that are close to his heart. In 2015, he directed his first short A Bomb (Best Screenplay at Fantasia, Best Fiction in Victoria, selections in Valladolid, Rhode Island, DC Shorts, Regard, etc.). He has since co-directed the satirical comedy Waiting for Pascal, which has been seen in genre festivals all over the world. Beaten Paths is Harvey’s third short film, and his most personal.
