After starting out in music video and film production at Jonathan Glazer’s company, Academy, he then began a prestigious career in supervision in theatrical marketing in London becoming Europe's foremost trailer music supervisor at Empire Design. Over 10 years, he worked consistently on hundreds of major worldwide trailer campaigns for clients including Warner Bros, Universal and StudioCanal providing original music creative for films such as Prometheus, Paddington and The Lobster.

Will then joined acclaimed film marketing agency GrandSon as Director of music.

In tandem with trailer supervision, Will was invited by Matthew Vaughn to bring his music creative skills to his breakout 2010 action comedy feature Kick-Ass.
