Will Reid

Will is an exciting young filmmaker and photographer from South East London, whose energetic and spontaneous direction make him an arresting new talent. His obsession with film and photography began when he received his first SLR as a present when he was a teenager, virtually not returning home for 3 years - consumed by a personal photographic quest. Learning the technical foundations of film photography early on in this way has given his a work an accomplished depth that he has been able to carry through to digital format.

With unconventional casting and real locations he captures the stories, feelings and glamour of youth culture in a very authentic way. Will’s smart editing skills mean that his films not only communicate a compelling immediacy of message but also have a wonderfully experimental vibe, as he tears up the rule book by overlaying imagery, text and even scratching over the images to give them greater drama and aesthetic intensity.
