*I'm an independent director. When boards come directly to me, I take a look at the size of the job, VFX/style needs, the proposed filming locations - and team the job up with the right production company to back me for that project. From that moment on, it's like any other traditional production.

So let's jam. Feel free to reach out directly. 


Brad Hasse is a director that often combines practical and visual effects with humorous dialogue and is distinguished by his highly inventive and absurdist creative vision, which The Young Director Review calls “seriously wacky, totally weird and rather wonderful.” An ADC Young Guns X and FABRICA fellowship recipient, Brad has filmed in over 20 countries in pursuit of all varieties of stories and content for clients that include Duracell, United Colors of Benetton, AutoTrader, Listerine, Yahoo!, MTV, Travel Channel, and music videos for RJD2, Gramatik, Straight No Chaser and Moby.  

His comedic and pop culture sensibilities inspired his multitude of viral videos, including “Texting Hat” and “Planet of the Apes Party Fun Time,” the likes of which have been featured on the home pages of Creativity, Creative Review, Fast Company, Laughing Squid, BuzzFeed, Spinner, MTV, Noisey, AOL, among others and in film festivals worldwide.

Brad holds both an American and Italian citizenship and lives just outside of NYC in Montclair, NJ with his wife and two kids and a whole bunch of yard work to do.
