Our very own Danny Clayton recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Hal Cumpston, the 20-year-old Aussie making waves in Hollywood that has been compared to a young Jonah Hill. From writing, producing and acting in his own coming of age film at 18 and 19, to scoring a lead role in the Walking Dead: World Beyond, this lad jumped right in!

Raised in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, Hal’s debut film, Bilched (which scored a Chelsea Film Award) acts as a love letter to those who have grown up in Bondi, Maroubra, Bronte and surrounds. Hal speaks of the struggles (but ultimate reward) of creating his own film and even hints at a huge new project he is set to be involved in.
