About Hal

I'm in this to make awesome movies. As an actor, my movies have screened at Tribeca, the Trieste Science+Fiction Festival, Fantastic Fest, and the Festival de Malaga, and have seen distribution with Gravitas and Wild Eye Releasing. I've turned to directing and screenwriting more recently. My first directing project received an Honorable Mention at the Los Angeles Underground Film Festival, and my "Munster's Mummy Museum Gift Shop & Gas" won Best Screenplay at the 3rd FICII in Lima, Peru. I'm currently looking for crew for my second short film, to be shot in Albuquerque in February of 2019.

    Revolution (2013 - 2014)
    Television (Action, Adventure, Drama and Sci-Fi) Actor Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why? Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it? On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman's life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously - and unbeknownst to her - had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future. Written by NBC Publicity
