Thomas Haley has been married to the love of his life Amy for over 20 years! Thomas was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona by a single mother. His whole time growing up he was the guy who wanted to make everyone laugh, thinking up silly skits and acting them out. Thomas moved to California when he turned 19 and became a father at the age of 20. However, fatherhood would not slow down his creativeness; actually, it gave him a new audience, 3 beautiful children: Erika, William and Brooklyn. But with fatherhood came responsibility. In other words, a full-time salary. Thomas went into the environmental industry where his new audience awaited in the form of his clients. As a salesmen he had many opportunities to share stories and entertain. In 2007, there was an offer by the television network TLC to have Thomas’ environmental company test as part of a reality show, Revolutionaries (on-camera, Thomas was the Environmental Inspector). This was a learning experience that lead to Thomas enrolling in several acting classes and intensive seminars – he was in love. In class he would learn only some aspects of the acting business and consequently set out to gain real-world experience through theater, short films, commercials and even small parts in feature films.
In 2010, Thomas started H2 Crew productions, allowing him to produce his own films while continuing to learn and grow in the entertainment industry. With H2 Crew’s first film, Horsepower, it was clear Thomas was hooked. To this day Thomas is always there to help out on a film. Whether it be acting, writing, producing or directing, Thomas enjoys it all.
In 2012, Thomas set out to write a short film and produce it to H2 Crew’s highest standards yet – “a feature-worthy short film.” Thomas teamed up with Dan Jagels, an experienced and battle-proven director. The film was Thirteen and the goal was ScreamFEST. The film was shot on a RED camera, in 4K with Cinema Lenses. The production lasted 8 days with locations spanning from East Los Angeles County to Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2013, H2 Crew’s goal was realized: Thirteen became an official selection of ScreamFEST, as well as 7 other film festivals.
In 2014, Thomas wanted to try his hand in Directing and wrote Officer Down, a 5-minute, on the edge of your seat short film, in the hopes of having it become an official selection of several 2014 film festivals.
