NOT ENOUGH KNIFE
"I can’t come back, but if you could see the view of Earth from up here,
you wouldn’t want to either.”
Written & Directed by Matthew W.F. Senior, 'william.' is a non-fictional eulogy film capturing the essence of his grandfather's life. This project sees William Henry Senior looking back at his life, and understanding how the world has changed around him.
Originally based on Senior's poem 'Home of Cold Rock', this project evolved into becoming a "living photograph" so that William can be immortalised forever in the world of film. This is a very personal film to Senior, who made this for his family and close friends of William Senior, as well as for anybody who had encountered him even once.
Told with artistic flare, this film depicts William Senior as accurately as possible, incorporating every aspect of his life, including: mannerisms, music choices and dialogue, to events depicted, hobbies, photographs and memories. All photographs and flashback clips are genuine.
On 18/12/2018, this film was updated with an extended version. Senior originally made this film as he was having constant nightmares about his grandfathers passing and decided to produce an art piece in which 'william' could be remembered forever; the film was an emotional process inspired by dreams. Following the films release, these nightmares stopped for around three months. When they came back, Senior shot additional footage and tweaked the editing throughout the film, re-releasing it a year later on 18/12/2018 when he felt it was absolutely perfect to him. The nightmares have since stopped.
"Perfect as a eulogy. Bill Senior creates an engaging presence within the film. Visuals are nicely composed - the visuals connect perfectly with Senior’s poetry – achieving a heavenly atmosphere, full of idyllic and leisurely touches. The film is an admirable poetic experiment."

" forever falling; forever still "... Stranded on an island, Gabriel is losing his mind.
' f r e e ' is a teaser for Senior's upcoming film project 'Demon Revolution'. Although mostly fiction, this project is the product of Senior's former mental state, and was created as a form of emotional therapy. Therefore, this is quite a personal project to him. He describes it as "beautiful, disjointed poetry" and "a window into his former depression". It is also a bonus feature on the blu-ray release of 'william.'
