Will's interest in film and art was piqued during the late 70s early 80s, with the burgeoning home video market in the UK, the Golden Age of British sci-fi comic books, such as 2000AD, and the vibrant music culture. It was this formative period of watching trash genre flicks, popping to electro and copying his favourite comic book artists that would leave a lasting impression on Will's storytelling and aesthetics.
In his late teens two directors would have the greatest impact on Will’s creative and intellectual understanding of ‘cinema’; Akira Kurosawa and Stanley Kubrick. The ‘Two K’s’, as he calls them, became his guides to the art of film making, with their near perfect harmony of sound, image and performance, setting the benchmark.
Will continues to grow and develop his techniques and style, approaching his professional work with a keen instinct and an original flair, towards his ultimate goal to direct feature length projects. Time and again creating work that punches above its weight on limited budgets and schedules
