About me

Also known as Mr Williams. I was born and raised in Newham, East London. My career in Filmmaking began in 2010 after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design, from Camberwell College, UAL. My love for music lead me making music videos but I wanted to translate the narratives of the songs into video like how Michael Jackson would when he collaborated with Martin Scorsese or Francis Ford Cappola. Through years of mixing and blending those skills with storytelling, I now make films. My first film was a feature film called 'The Newspaper'. I continued to develop my craft and In 2017 I completed a MA in Filmmaking, Cinematography at Goldsmiths University. I was recognised by the British Society of Cinematography and presented with a Certificate of Excellence as an Emerging Cinematographer for my student film 'Twenty Minutes'. I can only describe my portfolio as varied, but the ethos behind my work is consistently representing reality, as my practice continues to evolve I want to delve deeper into the abstract.
