Ever since that small film, Will has fervently dedicated himself to capturing the human experience.
Will has shot commercial content for ESPN, GMC, Hallmark and Subway Sandwiches and recently completed the narrative feature titled Ribbons. He is well versed in a variety of formats, including 35mm, 16mm, Alexa, Red, Sony and DSLRs.
