About the Event
We've been getting insight from casting directors and agents during this time. But what about directors? The people that make the final decisions. Join us for a Q&A with award-winning director Carey Williams this Friday May 23rd at 3pm.
Hailed by Filmmaker Magazine as one of 2018’s New Faces of Independent Film, Carey Williams is a director bringing a unique and visually striking cinematic eye to the exploration of the human condition. Williams aspires to evoke thought and reflection with his work by creating character-centric art that explores social and class structure.
In 2012, Williams directed CHERRY WAVES, which won Best Short film awards from HBO, NBC Shortcuts, San Diego Film Festival, as well as Best Narrative from Hollyshorts Film Festival. He honed his craft taking an apprenticeship with Emmy-winning director Greg Yaitanes on the critically acclaimed television show Banshee, where he directed an episode of the companion series Banshee: Origins. Williams received further tutelage as a mentee with Ryan Murphy’s Half Foundation, and was a directing fellow with HBO Access and Film Independent Project Involve. His latest work, the 2018 Sundance and SXSW Award winning short film EMERGENCY, is currently being developed as a feature.
