Will Jewell

Writer/director Will Jewell began making films with the award-wining short comedy Money To Burn (2000). He moved on to write and shoot Boglife (24 Hours In The Life of a NightClub Toilet, 2002) which was set in the grimy toilets at a rave and Lovebite (2005) – a dark, twisted noir tale about two strangers meeting in a bar. Having also directed drama for the web, he directed his first feature film South Coast: a documentary about the effects of US culture – in the form of hip hop – on British seaside towns. The film won various awards and was selected for over a dozen festivals globally. Will has also had several feature scripts subject to option and has scripted broadcast content for the BBC and SKY and developed and written five web drama series for the BBC and Channel 4, including the BAFTA winning Georgian crime drama Bow Street Runner.
