Hasraf ‘HaZ’ Dulull came from a VFX background before being known as a Director for 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. This lead to DisneyChannel Original Movies hiring him to direct the bridge special short film for the Descendants franchise which was rated as the highest viewed short form content on the channel. Both projects are now on Disney+ .
He is currently in various stages of production on genre TV, Feature and animation projects.
HaZ is repped in Hollywood by The Gotham Group, and is the co-founder of production company http://hazfilm.com/
