Brian K WilliamsBrian K. Williams has spent over twenty years independently studying photography and music. He is also a writer and a storyteller, his writing having appeared in various publications, album covers, and advertisements. Brian’s love of all these pursuits led him to picking up a video camera in 2013 and diving head first into the world of independent cinema. He immediately began producing material, starting with short films and music videos. Then he tackled his first feature film, the crowd pleasing love letter to fans of sexploitation, Time To Kill, which was released in March 2014. The film played all over the world, becoming an underground and genre convention hit. Brian has since collaborated with several filmmakers on different projects, including work as director of photography on The Legend of Wasco for Viva Pictures. He even spent some time in front of the camera in the films Run and Headless. In short time, Brian has made a name for himself in the indie film community and has come to be known for his visually exciting cinematography and aggressive editing style. Brian resides in Bloomington, Indiana, with his wife and son, where he operates the newly formed Bandit Motion Pictures along with Scott Schirmer. Their first two productions were Harvest Lake and Plank Face, both photographed by Brian.
