Director Biography - William J Craven

A creative by nature, Will enjoys bringing people together to make things happen. His talent for putting other people’s talents to work make him a skilled director, and his ability to communicate what he sees enables his team to produce extraordinary work. He understands all aspects of the video world and thrives on using them to create cinematic works of art.

Will loves his wife, traveling, and film. Having all three together is ideal, but any two of the three is ok too. When he’s not working, he’s either watching something with his wife or having an adventure with his friends. His favorite movies include Rogue Nation, Spectre, and Inception. He likes cooking savory food and his favorite snacks usually crunch (Cheeze-Its and Wheat Thins don’t last long around him).

Director Statement

I was drawn to filmmaking because I believe it is the highest form of storytelling. After working on several different missions film projects, I realized how powerful a tool filmmaking could be for the spread of the Gospel. I enrolled in the film school initially to improve my technical skills, but through my time there, I learned the value of quality craftsmanship and good storytelling.

My ultimate desire is to use the tool of filmmaking in missions. I want to help missionaries around the world impact the hearts and minds of their people with the Gospel through cinema. My wife and I are looking to pursue this unique calling by further establishing a missions media company that enables missionaries to utilize the tool of cinema.

I would like to thank my family for supporting me in my pursuit. Their prayers were an integral part of this endeavor. I also want to give God all the credit for giving me the strength and stamina to complete this film. Many times, things happened or worked out in ways that could only be attributed to Him, and He deserves the glory for this accomplishment.
