Harley intern Tessa Otto featured in international video competition


A Harley-Davidson Inc. intern who received a lot of social media attention this summer now has her story told in a short film clip that’s up for an international award.

Oshkosh filmmaker Alex Belville produced the video about Harley intern Tessa Otto.

Last weekend, it was in eighth place, among hundreds of entries, in the “people’s choice” category of the international FilmConvert competition.

Online voting will determine the winner of the category with voting, through Facebook, continuing until Nov. 18.

Otto, a University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh senior, was one of eight college students from around the world paid to ride motorcycles over the summer, documenting their experiences through millions of social media impressions.

A self-described outdoors woman who twice won snowshoe championships, Otto was raised on a farm in Kennan, a town of 130 people in northern Wisconsin.

She grew up riding, as a passenger, on her dad’s Electra Glide.

There are a lot of good memories from that bike, said her dad, Greg Ottto. 

Belville has a film production company, called Mirrorless Productions, that created the film clip for Otto to showcase her internship.

“It’s about what riding meant to her,” Belville said.

FilmConvert, based in New Zealand, sells film-making equipment and software for documentary filmmakers.

First prize in the people’s choice category of the competition is $5,000 worth of video gear.

“For a small production company like ours,” that would be huge, Belville said.
