Career
Jason Hall was born in Buffalo, New York State, United States of America in 1971.

Jace Hall (nickname "Jace") was the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Monolith Productions.[5] Blood (video game) and Blood II: The Chosen were some of his first projects, and he is responsible for creating real-time 3-D authoring technology, called the LithTech Engine which powered numerous video games created by various game developers.

He is also the voice of Tchernobog/BloodBath Announcer (credited as The VoiceTM), which was given its unique tone by resampling Hall's normal voice at a lower rate. Alongside Nathan Hendrickson, he is also credited with coming up with the basic premise for the Condemned: Criminal Origins and Condemned 2: Bloodshot, and has been said to be pitching ideas for a third game in the series to developers and fans. The initial concept, called "Species X" or "Iniquity", was also spun into the 2011 film The Unforgettable.

He was the inaugural senior vice president of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) in 2004, who soon bought out Monolith seven months later,[6] and was executive producer of many of their productions, including The Matrix Online, and F.E.A.R. He continued to support WBIE in their projects, with over forty games to his credit, his diverse experience making him unique in the industry.

One of his more notable moves was the idea that developers of properties licensed by Warner Bros. would have to pay extra royalties if their games received scores below 70/100 on review aggregates, as part of a general effort to improve the reputation of tie-in games.

After handing over his position to Samantha Ryan [7]in 2007 (who previously took over his position as Monolith CEO), he founded HDFilms Inc, most notably producing the web series The Jace Hall Show (2008-2012) and The Morning After (2011-2014) as well as the Unreal Engine 3 machinima production Chadam.

He was also an executive producer on the 2009 version of V, among other production work in film and television, such as PVC-1 (2008) and Brothers in Arms (2009). He has also been pitching a remake of Space 1999 under the title Space: 2099. Hall has also added singer-songwriter to his resume with release of the Mortal Kombat music video (over 18 million views).
[8]

Before Monolith, Hall worked as an engineer for Broderbund Software and manager of multimedia for Edmark Corporation. His experience includes investment banking, music composition and A/V engineering. A cheat code in Doom 95 exists called fhhall1 which kills all monsters in the level, excepting lost souls. Hall requested this particular cheat (hence the "BY REQUEST..." message that displays when the code is executed). The actual damage done to each monster is 10,000 hit points.

In January 2014, Jace Hall co-founded Smiletime, Inc [9], a Digital Media and video platform for premium content that allows audiences to serve as an integral part of the storytelling, driving, interacting and engaging with content on screen[10]. The company was based on Hall’s three inventions / patents ( Publication numbers: 20160150286[11], 9253527[12], 20150135234[13]) which cover a Social multi-camera interactive live engagement system.

In March 2014, Hall purchased Twin Galaxies, an organization dedicated to adjudicating and archiving video game high scores and achievements. He currently holds the position of CEO and caretaker of the Twin Galaxies organization.[14]

In 2016, Hall became the new CEO of esports organization Echo Fox.[15]

From Jan 2018 - Jan 2019, Hall temporarily served as proxy co-chairman of the H1Z1 Pro League, a professional esports league for the video game H1Z1, and a partnership between Twin Galaxies, LLC (not Twin Galaxies International, LLC) and Daybreak Games.[16]
