I commissioned Will to film some drama reconstruction for a BBC documentary called "Mecca under siege". I was bowled over by the material Will shot in Jordan. It was fantastic . Imaginative, stylish, with some brilliant framing and composition of the highest class. He followed the brief very closely and gave us a wealth of options in the edit. it was a taxing high pressure shoot under difficult conditions. But the quality of Will's images and the deftness of his direction lifted the whole film. It's unusual to find a director camera operator of his exceptional abities. I would highly recommend Will.
