Olly Williams arrives at Vision.

by Andrew MacGregor


Olly Williams's twin passions are directing and production design, and he's done a commendable job of balancing the two throughout his career. Now that he's joined the production design roster at Vision, Williams is well placed to continue advancing on both fronts.

While Vision will now represent Williams for production design, he will continue to be represented in the directing realm by Another Film Company.

There is a great demand for Williams's skill-set in both realms and recent art directing projects have seen him collaborate with directors including Tom Kuntz, Smith & Foulkes, and The Bobbsey Twins, all of whom hail William's knack for set design, construction, and scale modelling.

It's the last of these which helps this Temptations ad capture the viewer's imagination. Working with Nexus and directors Smith & Foulkes, Williams constructs a miniature city populated by hand-painted figurines… and gamely lets a cat wreak havoc on it.

Such work shows Williams is still at the top of his game when it comes to production design, and Vision are confident he can maintain this form alongside his directing work.
