Born in Paris, Bill started doing some auto-produced short films and working as assistant director and location manager for TV commercials and feature films. Since then, he made several short films as Drifting, staring the famous French actor Pierre Richard. This short film went in many festivals, and gave him the possibility to direct two other short films, Slices of Life (which won the Best Director award at the Short film Corner in Cannes), and Up There. He has been directing many commercials in France and in Italy (he won the Young Director Award in Cannes Lions for a Freddy commercial), and some video clips. He is also working on his first feature film project.
