“HaZ” Dulull and sci-fi guerrilla filmmaking

People know him as HaZ, and his sci-fi films are instantly recognisable. He was late coming to filmmaking, with careers in Games and VFX first of all

He’s known to his colleagues and friends in the industry as HaZ, with a keen eye for visual effects.

HaZ started his career in video games, creating cinematic CGI sequences before moving into film visual effects as a compositor, eventually rising up to Visual Effects Supervisor and VFX Producer roles. He’s now a Visual Effects Creative Director in the Motion Pictures Industry, and has been nominated for several Visual Effects Society (VES) awards for his Visual Effects Supervision work.

HaZ transitioned into writing and directing with his self-funded sci-fi short – ‘Project Kronos’ (2013) which earned him representation and status as an emerging filmmaker.

He is currently attached to several studio projects as writer & director while still working in the visual effects industry as a VFX consultant. His latest film is ‘Sync’ about cyber espionage and rogue androids and it’s featured in the interviews HaZ gave for this course.

Now you’ve seen two different guerrilla filmmakers, working in very contrasting ways, making very different work. What do you think are the commonalities in their approach? What effect would big Hollywood blockbuster type budgets have on their work?
