Oscar is a BAFTA-nominated filmmaker and Screen International Star of Tomorrow. His work has received many awards internationally, from the likes of Joss Whedon, Guillermo del Toro and Sir Alan Parker. 
With scholarships from Fulbright and BAFTA, he attended NYU Grad Film, alma mater of Scorsese and Ang Lee, under professors Todd Solondz, Spike Lee & Darren Aronofsky. 
His short film T​he Kármán Line starring Olivia Colman was a festival hit, nominated for a BAFTA and released online by The New Yorker. He was signed to a blind deal by Tobey Maguire's Material Pictures. 
In 2016, he collaborated with technologist Ross Goodwin to make Sunspring, starring Thomas Middleditch, the world's first film written entirely by an Artificial Intelligence. The A.I. then named itself Benjamin during a live interview. The film provoked an enormous press response and was exhibited at many major venues and galleries worldwide. Sharp & Goodwin followed this in 2017 with It's No Game, in which David Hasselhoff plays a version of himself generated by Benjamin. The film depicts a Writer's Guild of America strike in the face of artificial intelligence, six years ahead of such events unfolding for real. Then in 2018's Zone Out they attempted to have Benjamin write, direct, perform, score, and edit a short film, and the original Sunspring cast agreed to be 'uploaded' in order to be deepfaked. Then in 2019 they created Bobo & Girlfriend for Robert Downey Jr's Age of AI documentary. This final short film remains unreleased. 
In 2017, 20th Century Fox acquired Ben Mezrich's book Woolly: The True Story of the De-Extinction of One of History’s Most Iconic Creatures for Oscar to co-write & direct for the screen. 
In 2021 Sharp teamed with Damon Lindelof & Matt Reeves to develop his magical-realist medical procedural The Human Conditions for HBO Max. 
He is represented by United Talent Agency & Echo Lake. He is based in Los Angeles and London.
