Shiners - William Glass

Two school friends sit in a bar and talk about the urban myths that populate their school folklore.

William Glass (born 1994) is a London-based filmmaker whose work often takes urban myths and misremembered stories as a starting point to construct narratives. The films present a layered reality that is informed as much by hear-say and fictions as actual biographical detail, with the slippage of different fictions integral to the works. William is influenced by a myriad of filmmakers from throughout cinema history, but particularly those who explore cinematic language and its potential without constraint. He is currently studying at the Slade School of fine art, graduating in 2017.
