Charlie Williams is a documentary filmmaker, cinematographer, film editor, and screenwriter from London England.
Graduating with a masters in Anthropology from The University of Edinburgh in 2006, Charlie developed his training in ethnographic filmmaking by directing and editing his first documentary feature about a unique town of guitar makers in Mexico. 'The Guitar Is Their Song' was broadcast by TV UNAM in Mexico and was distributed on DVD in the UK and internationally.
Charlie moved to New York City in 2010, where he works as cinematographer for Manhattan based production company Cinomadic.
In parallel, Charlie has worked extensively as a film editor, cutting a number of critically acclaimed narrative feature films including Bag Boy Lover Boy, Kids Rights: The Business of Adoption, and Indiana (for which he also wrote the screenplay). Charlie is also the lead video editor for YouTube channel Pasta Grannies growing its audience from zero to 730,000 subscribers.
His most recent feature documentary - 'Front Stage & Back' - is a warts and all character study of unknown 58 year old New York actor, Theodore Bouloukos. Over the course of two years the camera follows Theodore's daily ups and downs while exploring deeper themes of performance and the complexities of self knowledge.
