My name is Andrew Wills. I work as a Senior IT Technician at a very lovely school where I also teach Media Studies and work as a Photographer. In my spare time I'm an aspiring filmmaker, novelist, game developer and artist.
I also design and build websites, am occasionally a bit of an entrepreneur when the moment takes me and I'm a huge film buff, gaming enthusiast and sci-fi, boardgame and fantasy geek. This page is all about my interests.
I used to make films a few years ago, doing everything from sound recording and mixing, to editing and camerawork. I still do from time to time, but not as actively.
Above are a few photographs taken from various filmsets that I worked on.
I'm a huge fan of George R. R. Martin's epic medieval backstabbing series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Since picking up Game of Thrones earlier this year, as a result of the buzz surrounding
the fantastic TV series, I haven't been able to stop reading and have since worked my way through A Clash of Kings and A Storm of Swords and I'm currently forging my way through A Feast
for Crows at a rate of knots.
Battlestar Galactica is the best television series ever made. I began watching this after the fourth season had aired state side, and my first experience was one of confusion and
disarray. I didn't know what was happening, who was who and most importantly why... Then I discovered there were three pilot episodes, prior to Season 1 and suddenly the whole thing made
sense! Another week and two hours of viewing later and I was hooked for the next two years. Good grief, the most powerful, emotional, terrifying, and intelligent storytelling ever. That is all.
I was invited to experience Airsoft recently by some friends booked to play at RAF Upper Heyford near Oxford. It was amazing. I'd been paintballing before, but
the authenticity of the environment, appearance of squadmates and the enthusiasm, organisation, scenarios and atmosphere of Airsoft is now unbeatable. I'm sorry Paintball,
but you just no longer cut it.
I love being me.
It's hard not to when you're this handsome.
No, really. Go take a look.
If you're a lady, take a moment to swoon.
If you're a man, you should probably sit down.
Now, this is a story all about how ...
... My life got flipped-turned upside down ...
... Oh, no wait.
I'm not the Fresh Prince.
I'm the Mint Dictator.
The tea bag and sugar should go in the mug first.
I say Baaarth, not Baff.
If I am handed a toy phone, I will answer it.
I smile at strangers. Insistently.
I was once asked if was a genius or a madman.
Because only a genius or a madmen dances to the beat...
... that noone else can hear ...
