THE ART OF HAL HEFNER

Hal Hefner uses award winning art, design, writing and strategy to create digital experiences. While with Fourth Wall Studios Hal helped to create a technology driven web series platform called Rides.tv which produced the Emmy award winning series Dirty Work. While with Ignition, Hal participated in the creation of digital experiences for many studios including Fox, Paramount, Netflix and the SyFy channel as well as Brands like Nike, NFL and Playstation. Through the years Hal has created video game art for THQ, wrote and illustrated Heavy Metal Magazine's first webcomic, Gates and wrote a biopic on comedian Bill Hicks, currently in production. Recently, Hal created an intellectual property that involved an Alternate Reality Game that contained a multitude of branded content centered around an ancient cult. Hal sold this IP to acclaimed author James Frey and it is to be developed for his trilogy of books and movies called Endgame. In partnership with James Frey and Google, Hal will be consulting in the development of the property within the the Endgame universe. Hal is currently working on THE SERPENT SEED, a cyberpunk universe which will be launched in various formats including comic books, motion books and animation.
