Willy Crank 2016 director's reel

Global


After a tough selection I'd like to present you with the cream of my 2016 crops. My sincere gratitude to all the producers, agencies, crew and cast members that I have worked with. 

I appreciate all of the great efforts you have put into creating these films. That sounds cheesy as fuck but it is the truth. As we know in our line of work: Truth can be held in the shadows, but it will always seek the light. So let us spend a future, creating great films, together...

Cheers! Willy.
