Will is a music video, short film and commercial director represented by Ground Work.

Will is interested in provoking thought around our lived spaces, people and structures, using inventive and unique visual devices to create impactful, feeling driven stories and art.

At the age of 16 Will started his career in television as a runner for a production company in Bristol. At the age of 21 he joined the BBC for 3 years working in post production and then eventually in the innovation department, meeting natural history programme executives with an aim to develop new and exciting techniques to tell stories and elevate programmes.

With a keen eye for art and storytelling, Will later took his skills and thinking into a more artistic and commercial direction.

Will has since won awards at the UKMVAs, D&AD, 1.4 and the Cannes Young Directors Awards and has very recently been shortlisted at the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors Showcase.
