Will fell into film making while working to become a stunt man. With a history of martial arts and living near Los Angeles, he is not the first obsessed karate nut to try this. After working on a few low-budget projects, Will joined the Production Crew with early Fred Olen Ray films. Art and oil painting were a principal goal in those days, and Will supported himself with jobs as crew on low-budget narrative feature productions for years, .
Shortly after the Indonesian earthquake and subsequent tsunami of 2004, Willie ended up in Sri Lanka repairing fishing boats for 5 months as a volunteer aid worker. After returning home, with 30 hours of video footage, and with the kind help of his editor pal Barbara Gondolfo-Frady, Will put together a documentary feature on the relief efforts in Sri Lanka, narrated by Michelle Phillips. After winning The Spirit of Independents Award at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival in 2006, Will went back to working on writing and pitching his first narrative feature, a new project which might really push the boundaries of imagination for an audience, called Templin Highway.
Years later after returning from a trek to Niger, Africa, Will began to plan a series of documentaries teaching school garden projects in Niger, "A Little School in Africa," which helps kids learn gardening and blossoms into full-blown large-scale farming later.
After utterly failing to resist the temptation to shoot a little documentary movie with pals in the Ojai Mardi Gras (a charity benefit yearly bash), Will shot and produced his second documentary, "The Ojai Mardi Gras 2013." After an extremely successful Red Carpet premier at the Ojai Film Festival and subsequent party, which surprisingly resulted in no arrests, Will returned to putting hammer and tongs to the story of Templin Highway.
Will hopes to pitch, fund and shoot Templin Highway as his first narrative feature.
