Raised in Botswana, Africa, William began his directing career making short, visual pieces that projected the sensitivity and emotive tone of his future work.
He was recognized at the Cannes Young Director Award for his first ever film. Grounded in documentary, his work shows a natural ability for storytelling and drawing out emotions with finely crafted imagery. William has switched between commercials, music videos and short films, with his most recent project set to world premiere at a major US film festival in 2021.
