My name is Mark Phillip Wills (M.P. Wills) and I’m a Thai-Australian Writer & Director based in Sydney, Australia. As a film student, the critique of images and the investigation of lyricism punctuated my years, with a strong focus on using atmosphere and tone as my primary narrative tool.
In my work, I like making things people might find unusual or strange, beautiful; the overlapping clash that happens when darkness, beauty and comedy are juxtaposed to form one absurd, unified idea. It is the contrast between beautiful depth in the visuals and the actual content of what is being conveyed which fascinates me; a world where the overall visual palate contradicts its thematic tones.
I like asking what beauty can be, and in turn, hope to use my unique, cross-cultural lens to explore fresh and exciting ways the boundaries of film can be pushed. I am currently in development for my debut feature film.
