Video Talks Podcast: Episode 07
This is the second part of the interview with director Hasraf 'HaZ' Dulull.
Listen to Episode 06 for Part 1 of the interview.

HaZ used every trick in the ‘thinking outside the box’ book to go from compositor to eventual movie director. 

In Part #2 he talks about how the right sales companies can really help you decide on what film to make, how to reach out to industry contacts, his own online course on filmmaking and how filmmaking is changing with the latest gaming tech.

He also explains the process behind making Battlesuit – his recent animated pilot.
