Isaac Halasima

Isaac Halasima began writing a film based on the “Nutty Putty Cave” in 2009. His journey of talent leads him to experience life and his resume includes other sublime features, including directing Imagine Dragon’s “Demons” music video that went double certified on VEVO and won the MMVA’s in Canada for “International Music Video of the Year.”


Before his calling for directing music videos, Isaac also helped make a documentary, acted in commercials and hosted a television show, where he was part of receiving two Emmy Awards at the young age of 16 years. He also danced on the cult-classic television show “So You Think You Can Dance.”


In high school he won two awards at the High School Film Festival. He received a scholarship to UVU in the Student Media department where he produced three TV shows, winning the “Talent of the Year” award in 2001. He began an internship at KSL-TV in the sports department and took over as Sports Editor. Later he reunited with one of his Student Media buddies from UVU, Matt Eastin. They worked in a production company together, Kineto Pictures where he got to direct his first video, a documentary called “Bailar” that won a UBA for International Documentary.
