Jake Hulse is one of the founding members of Happy Wasteland Studios, his screenplay “Jumpers and Cutters” was named a 2019 Page International Screenwriting Award Finalist, and he just wrapped on a short film entitled: Soot (to be released in the summer of 2020).
He has been writing and directing films since his first claymation movies in middle school. Jake started his filmmaking career at the concession counter of his local cineplex. He’d begged them to let him be an usher, but he wasn’t old enough and the closest he ever got to working in the theatre was shelling out bags of popcorn in the main lobby. A graduate of Northeastern University, he originally pursued a career in law enforcement, before switching gears to focus more squarely on his filmmaking career.
