William has continued building and refining his team and has a pilot television script in production. He has had mentoring sessions with Richard Ayoade and Rob Yescombe. William also took part in a storytelling masterclass with BAFTA Scotland for an audience of career starters.
I want to diversify as a creative person. I’ve had the privilege and scariness of not going to university – The Stanley Parable was my university – so I’m still finding my path. I feel the momentum from The Stanley Parable is all very conceptual, whereas this next year will be a great opportunity for me to turn that into something tangible.
