Hasraf ‘HaZ’ Dulull started his career in video games, and then Visual Effects for Film and TV, before transitioning to directing and producing with his breakout sci-fi indie feature film – THE BEYOND, which was released by Gravitas Ventures, and premiered at #2 on the iTunes charts before trending on Netflix and fully recouping its budget quickly and becoming a profitable feature film.  

His second feature film 2036: ORIGIN UNKNOWN, which starred Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica, Another Life) earned a limited theatrical release in the US before landing on Netflix.  

He was later hired to direct the pilot for Disney’s action comedy mini series – FAST LAYNE, and was also credited as creative consultant on the entire series and directed three additional episodes when he wowed Disney channel executives with his vision for the 8 part series.  HaZ is repped in Hollywood by The Gotham Group,  and is the co-founder of production company (http://hazfilm.com/)

Haz Dulull is currently developing genre TV, feature and animation projects utilizing virtual production and Unreal Engine, his understanding of utilizing ground breaking technology with storytelling has recently lead him to go into production as the director on the CG animated feature film adaptation of the acclaimed video game Mutant Year Zero, where he used Reallusion’s Character Creator 3 and iClone to create his realistic film character in just 1 week.

” The benefits of real-time visuals like Reallusion and Unreal Engine, is that they allow me to be as hands on as possible with every aspect of animation filmmaking such as setting up the camera moves, to choreographing the action all physically hands on, directly inside the scenes. “

Using Cartoon Animator, Ward Anderson is reviving the retro look of the much loved television cartoons of the 1960’s and 70’s in a series of short films and music videos.

With a background in writing and performing rather than animating, in this interview Ward explains how Cartoon Animator allows him to get the animation results he wants in faster timeframes, without the extensive knowledge from a background in animation.   

Cartoon Animator has made it possible for me to blend the principles of animation that have been around forever with the efficiency that modern technology has given us. “
