The Bill Willis Doc - Director's Notes

This project began when Neil Hutchinson bought Bill's old house in Marrakech. It was a palace in some disrepair after being empty for a few years. All Bill's furniture and objects had been sold to friends in an auction with proceeds going to Isham and Labi, his cook and housekeeper, whom he was very close to.

The sand storms and the elements had taken their toll on the house and Neil, who had bought the house, wanted to make a film to record it for the future, before any work was done on the house.
