Topic: Taking the leap from VFX to Directing and Producing Feature Films and TV
In this Keynote I take you all into a visual, raw, deep dive journey on how I took the leap from a VFX career to film / TV directing and producing, and how just when I thought I had made it, Covid-19 hit and how I had to think outside the box to get where I am today with directing and producing animated series and feature film.
Hasraf ‘HaZ’ Dulull
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.

Both projects are now on Disney+ .
He is currently in various stages of production on genre TV, Feature and animation projects.
