Billy started his career while still at Bournemouth Film School; he began directing music videos which garnered millions of views and produced feature-doc ‘Beyond Clueless’ which premiered at SXSW (and later landed on Netflix and Mubi). His graduation short film 'More Hate Than Fear' was nominated for awards at Camerimage and the Royal Television Society.

Billy directed 'Reach', an award winning short for Channel 4 Random Acts, followed immediately by 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' for Pride in London. Pride won a D&AD Yellow Pencil and New Director Awards at the British Arrows, Kinsale and Ciclope Festivals, plus gained inclusion at the Saatchi & Saatchi New Creators Showcase in Cannes. Billy was also selected by Campaign Magazine as one of the Top 10 Directors in its end of year issue.

Since then Billy has directed multi-award winning work for the likes of Nike, ITV, Co-op, NHS and Cadbury, cementing him as one of the most sought after new directing names in advertising.

Most recently he has directed work for Alzheimer’s Society, the Justice & Care Coalition and the BBC, leading to multiple industry awards including Best Of Show at AICP, plus 3 further Golds and 2 Gold, 3 Silver and 4 Bronze at the British Arrows.

Billy’s short film ‘Wings’ was premiered at the BFI and is currently being entered into short film festivals around the world.
