This led him to pursue art and film and eventually to form Mayhem Pictures with Jake Limone. There he was able to express his love of sci-fi/horror through the development of several short films, going as far as designing and constructing original monster costumes. Will also directed two stop-motion music videos for local indie pop band, Similar Kind.
