Since then, he has worked as part of the assistant director teams on shows such as CW’s Supernatural, Legends of Tomorrow, ABC’s Once Upon a Time and The Whispers, AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, Hulu’s Shut Eye as well as Gareth Edward’s Godzilla, Patricia Rozema’s Into the Forest and Duncan Jones’ Warcraft.
Halbedl works with Joshua M. Ferguson, under the Turbid Lake Pictures banner, to write, develop, produce and direct short and feature film projects.
They have made two short films to date: Limina (2016) and Whispers of Life (2013) with producing and directing partner Florian Halbedl. Joshua aims to discover innovative, unique and marginalized stories that seek to represent the rich diversity of humanity. Joshua believes that “Film can act as a beacon of hope for those struggling with being marginalized while simultaneously deploying new ways to expand awareness in a changing global landscape that typically participates in exclusionary and reductive forms of cinematic representation.” Joshua is currently working with Florian to develop a new short film, a feature-length dramatic fiction film and a feature-length documentary.
