Sketch Films is developing a documentary about the legendary interior designer Bill Willis in conjunction with Neon Ventures. The film tells Bill's story - from his arrival in Marrakech in 1966 with Paul Getty until his death in 2010. Bill lived a rich and full life and had many friends including Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Berge, Christopher Gibbs and others. He revolutionised interior design in Morocco and pushed local artisans to create incredible work. His methods were unusual and the results were astonishing. Pierre Berge has published a book about Bill which is available at the shop in the Jardin Majorelle.

We have started filming in Europe and Morocco, speaking to Bill's old friends. We will shortly be filming in some of the houses designed by Bill in Marrakech.

If you have would like to participate or feel that there is something we should know about, please get in touch at
