Hasraf ‘ HaZ’ Dulull started his career as a Visual Effects Supervisor / Producer before establishing a reputation from his sci-fi short films – Project Kronos, I.R.I.S and Sync for depicting grounded sci-fi themes . This lead him to producing, writing and directing his first Feature film – The Beyond – Released by Gravitas Ventures (Dec 2017) , and soon after he Directed (based on a story he wrote) – Origin Unknown starring Katee Sackhoff released by Content Media (Released 2018). He is currently also in development on a futuristic Robin Hood film with Producer Gianni Nunnari.
The Beyond is a science fiction documentary film that blends the realism of ‘found footage’ with the fantastical, ‘big idea’ nature of the science fiction films of today.
The Beyond tells a fascinating and exhilarating story chronicling the ground-breaking mission which sent astronauts – modified with advanced robotics, through a newly discovered wormhole known as the Void. When the mission returns unexpectedly, the space agency races to discover what the astronauts encountered on their first of its kind interstellar space journey.
