William is an award winning director and photographer with 15 years industry experience. London based, he was educated at the Dublin Institute of Technology and completed his Masters in Directing for the Screen at Drama Centre, Central Saint Martins. From there William went straight into Trademark Pictures under the mentorship of then BAFTA Chairman and Oscar winning Producer (Shakespeare in Love), David Parfitt. Commercially William has worked with such high profile clients such as chef Heston Blumenthal, pianist Maria João Pires, and choir leader Mark de Lisser.
William's short film, ‘Remnants’, collected Best Film, Best Writing, and Best Director in the international competition the 100 Hour Film Festival. His production company, Zoetic Productions, are currently developing their first feature, a comedic take on extremism in the vein of Chris Morris’ Four Lions.
Friendly, observant, and insightful, William understands the story telling process as one of collaboration and exploration, where one vision can be very quickly enhanced by accommodating many perspectives and harnessing all the resources available, the best of which are often the hearts, heads, eyes, and ears of those focused on and invested in the project at hand.
